Meet the Team

Michael Andersen R. Andersen is the founder and president of Andersen Wealth Management. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Master's degree in Business Administration, both from Salisbury University. In addition he is also a Registered Investment Advisor Representative and a licensed fiduciary.

"There are a lot of people out there doing financial work," Mr. Andersen says. "But only a small percentage are fiduciaries. I think being held to the fiduciary standard is a must these days because we are required by law to put our clients first. Too many financial people are merely salesmen and I believe that clients need an advisor who must be on their side." 

In his practice, Mr. Andersen strongly believes in regular financial education. As he explains it, "we tend to make the wisest decisions when we're well informed. And when it comes to financial decisions, the impact of a wrong choice could affect your lifestyle for many years. This is especially true for folks who are approaching or even in retirement. So part of my job is to help bring my clients to a level of education and understanding so they have all critical facts before making financial decisions."

Prior to forming his own firm, Michael Andersen worked with one of the country's premier risk management firms, and he carried that knowledge over to Andersen Wealth Management. While Mr. Andersen is not against taking on various risks, he believes risks should be carefully controlled and kept to a minimum. Plenty of other advisors embrace risk; Michael Andersen simply believes in Warren Buffet's Number One rule of investing, "don't lose money," and he strives to protect his client's life savings first and foremost.

Michael Andersen is routinely ranked as one of the country's top financial advisors, and he regularly wins awards for his innovative ideas, commitment to financial education, and balanced approach that he takes with client investment recommendations.

Mr. Andersen was born and raised in Rockville, but moved to the Eastern Shore in 1990s, where he now lives with his wife and their three active young children in northern Talbot County. Outside of work, he enjoys political discussions, science fiction, and spending time with his family—especially at the beach!
