Skip to main content | Financial freedom happens here.

James Caldwell, AAMS®

My goal is to not only listen and understand the unique financial situation of each member, but also have informative conversations to help them negotiate between the life they want to live now, and the life and (WEALTH) they would like to build for their future.

My role is to guide them towards a customized and detailed plan to live a life of financial freedom. Seeing my clients fulfilling their dreams and living the life they’ve created is what drives me.

I think of my clients as family and I want them to feel that trust and support from me as their financial advisor.

You may be referred to CUSO Financial Services, LP ("CFS"), the brokerage firm and Registered Investment Adviser that provides non-deposit investment products and services through financial professionals who are registered with CFS. Please note that FAIRWINDS Credit Union (FAIRWINDS) and CFS have entered into an agreement whereby FAIRWINDS may refer members as potential investment clients to our financial professionals registered with CFS. Below is some important information for you to understand about this endorsement.

  1. The Credit Union is not a current investment client of CFS.
  2. The financial professionals are employees of FAIRWINDS, licensed and registered through CFS to offer and sell investment advisory services and products. In return for management and maintenance of the financial professionals and program, FAIRWINDS receives compensation from CFS.
    1. The compensation FAIRWINDS will receive is made up of a percentage (net of expenses and overhead) that investment clients pay for entering a financial advisory relationship through a financial professional registered with CFS. The Credit Union will continue to receive compensation for as long as the investment advisory relationship is sustained.
    2. You do not pay a higher investment advisory fee or financial planning fee because of the fee paid to the Credit Union.
  3. Because you are being referred from the credit union, we want to make you aware of the potential financial benefit to the credit union should an investment advisory account or service be established. This constitutes a conflict of interest as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Credit Union is not authorized to provide investment advice on behalf of CFS. For important information related to our fees and services please review the CFS Form ADV Part 2A or visit
