Anthony Macaluso is a financial advisor for Woodbury Financial, an independent broker dealer. Over the course of his decade long career, he has held several senior level positions.
Anthony completed his undergraduate studies at St. John’s University, Pete J. Tobin School of Business, where he earned a degree in finance. Following his education and life goal of a job in the finance world, he was hired by Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. After attaining his Series 7, Series 63, and Series 66 licenses, he was then recruited by Capital One Investments. He remained at Capital One for seven years until they sold the investment arm of their business to Woodbury Financial, a member of Advisor Group. With this shift came a change in Anthony’s focus. He is now focused on maintaining relationships with new and existing clients. This has helped him to improve his communications skills and fostered his appreciation for the value of long-term client relationships.
Nowadays, Anthony’s role as a financial advisor has evolved to include the management of a team of former Capital One investing advisors. While he still maintains his signature hands-on approach with existing clients, he is committed to staying ahead of the curve regarding market activity and current events that might affect the investment landscape. Anthony places a priority on his fiduciary responsibilities to clients and to assisting them in pursuing their financial goals. Anthony states, “Part of my job is to help reduce the fear of market volatility by providing current, practical and relevant advice to my clients.
His emphasis on the value of hard work can be attributed in part to Anthony’s father, who ran a home heating oil business on Long Island. “My dad instilled in me, at a very young age, the work ethic, morals, and responsibility, which is as much a part of my personality, as my professionality” he states. In complement of this heritage, Anthony maintains an equally impressive profile within the community through support of charities such as Toys for Tots and alumni benefits for St. John’s University.
