Michael has patiently and consistently walked us step by step from financial chaos to a solid plan for our future. In what seems like very short order he has managed to get us to tick all the relevant boxes leading us to a place of financial certainty.

I started working with Rick while I was still in medical school, and even though my education and practice took me to different parts of the country, I have always had confidence that Rick was watching over my portfolio with the same care and attention as he would his own.
Now, years later, as my practice and family grows he continues to play pivotal role in helping me sort through the many opportunities and distractions that get put in front of me and my family. Having Rick quarterback my investments and insurance frees me to focus my attention on the many demands of my profession.

Client since 1986
I have been a client of Caldwell Advisory since 1996 and over the years Michael has always been there for me. Whenever I’ve had concerns about the market Michael has only been a phone call away to reassure me that we’re on the right path. Michael’s greatest strengths are his honesty, integrity and his ability to engage you in the planning process.
I have been working with Rick since 1985, and he has now served three generations of my family. When the media is promoting panic, Rick has always offered a calming voice, helping us avoid rash and emotional decisions that would have cost us. He has worked with us to consolidate our insurance and investment positions, identify our future needs and suggested ways to create a lasting legacy for some of the charitable causes that are important to us as a family. Now, he’s starting to help us pass on sound financial principles to our daughters.

Beata and I have been clients of Caldwell Advisory since 1996 and have worked extensively with Josef to ensure that our family and business are properly protected and prepared for the future. Regardless of whether we’ve dropped in unexpectedly or we’re there for our scheduled review Josef has always taken the time to explain things in terms we can understand, being sure not to confuse us with technical jargon that sails over our heads. Josef is great at helping us feel confident with the plans we’ve put together with him and always reassuring at times when we need it most. It is nice to have friend as financial advisor.

When I wanted to purchase Life Insurance, Josef and Michael were an enormous help to me.
Josef has been my financial advisor for over 10 years. He has assisted Ruth and I in setting up our finances for our retirement. For my insurance they took into account all of my needs, based on family, business and cost requirements.

When I first met with Dan, I knew within minutes that I could trust him and his advice. Dan possesses a substantial knowledge of the markets and can articulate complex financial concepts in terms that non experts can easily understand. I truly appreciate that Dan has guided me according to my personal needs. I have complete confidence in his judgement and integrity and know that my investments are safe in his hands.
Michael and Josef have built and maintained our Employee Group Benefit Plan since 1999. There has never been an unanswered question or lack of communication over that time. In many instances they have gone back to the insurer and successfully renegotiated a premium reduction, even when there are no issues to be dealt with—they were just dropping in to say hi.
For personal insurance Michael has looked after our family needs for 20 plus years, again with the best of service.
