Who We Are and What We Believe

Herman S. Cage & Associates is a financial planning firm distinguished by our knowledge of the tax code and our ability to leverage that knowledge on behalf of our middle-class clients.

Our mission is to give clients a working knowledge of various financial strategies and investment options so that they can be informed and effective stewards of their financial resources and realize their life goals and ambitions.

Our Pledge. To offer advice that is always in our client’s best financial interest. We present financial strategies and products based on an objective review of our client’s stated goals, financial situation, age and risk tolerance. We never pressure clients to purchase any particular product or pursue any particular strategy.

Our Goal. To bring clarity to a process that is often clouded. It’s common in the financial services industry to present strategies riddled with jargon and vague, complicated explanations. We do just the opposite. We help clients to understand what they’re doing and why they’re doing it. This approach empowers people to take control of their financial situation. We find that it also helps everyone sleep better at night.


Financial Planning & Tax Preparation

Herman S. Cage & Associates offers financial planning services, designed to develop a blueprint for clients to help them achieve their stated goals. The frequency of length of meetings depends on factors such as the complexity of your situation, performance of your investments, and life’s unexpected events. Because any investment strategy that does not take into account a client’s tax situation is inherently flawed, we also handle our clients’ tax preparation needs.

Risk Management Products

When appropriate and as part of an overall strategy, Herman S. Cage & Associates offers:

  • Annuities
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Medicare supplemental insurance


Herman S. Cage & Associates is located in the Lincoln Square Community on Chicago’s north side. We serve individuals and business owners who are serious about adopting and following a systematic approach to managing their financial resources. While our primary service area is the Midwest, we have clients located across the United States and in 12 countries.
