Among his peers, Michael was an early adopter of the fiduciary advisor model.

When Michael Stalker began his career in 1983, advice was typically obtained through stockbrokers and involved buying or selling securities. He found it unsatisfying because of its limitations in creating wealth for his clients and its inherent conflicts of interest.
In response, in 1991, he founded the fee-only, SEC Registered Investment Advisory firm now known as MCS Family Wealth Advisors, and he is still the principal owner.
