Michael A. Oliver

Financial Advisor 

Office: (949) 486-8328


Michael works with clients to identify their definitions of financial security and then focuses on strategies that help make those financial goals a reality. He relies not only on his own knowledge and experience, but also on the expertise of a team of specialists available through his network. With this approach, he and his team provides innovative strategies and professional direction to help clients accomplish their objectives.

Philosophically speaking, Michael strongly believes his competitive advantage is his process as he places more emphasis on what his client’s value the most…rather than what they have of value.
