In 2016, after long consideration, Damien decided that Stifel was the clear choice to best service his clients: one of the nation's leading wealth management and investment banking firms meets entrepreneurship spirit. The best of both worlds.
“Investing isn’t about the markets, it’s about people.
It’s about you and making your money work for you.” – Damien Caillault
Damien Caillault has been a Financial Advisor with Stifel since 2016. Prior to this, he spent eight years with the GMS Group, where he developed a deep understanding of the fixed income market and municipal bonds, in particular.
Damien began his investment industry career in 2008 in the midst of the Great Recession. Experiencing this firsthand convinced him that it is easier to build wealth when one does not have to make up for losses. Therefore, his first priority is to develop strategies designed to seek stability and return of principal for clients before anything else.
Drawing on the specialized knowledge gained from obtaining the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM designation, Damien also focuses heavily on helping his clients plan for retirement. He assists clients in understanding where they are today, what will be required for retirement, and what they’ll need to do between now and then. He not only looks at his clients’ savings and investments, but also Social Security, long-term care expenses, cost of living, and Medicare.
A U.S. citizen since 2012, Damien was born and raised in France and studied and worked in the United Kingdom and Spain. Being trilingual, as well as his experience in other industries (exports, construction, and fragrances, amongst others), helps him keep a common sense and grounded approach when analyzing companies and understanding investors’ backgrounds.
Outside the office, Damien enjoys every minute he can spend with his daughter, Gwendoline, and wife, Diana. He uses the little spare time he has cooking delicious meals for them, traveling, enjoying the outdoors, and volunteering with the Morristown Rotary Club.

Janice joined Stifel in 2007 as a Client Service Associate. She assists with a variety of client service requests, including, but not limited to, new account opening, general account maintenance, and funds transfers. Her work assisting clients in their day-to-day needs, account-related needs, and in the implementation of strategies allows Damien to focus more on his clients and their investments.
Prior to joining Stifel, she was employed with Finance Investments, Inc. She earned an Associates of Applied Sciences degree and lives in East Hanover, where she grew up.
When she is not spending her time with her husband, five children, and eight grandchildren, she is riding her exercise bike, crocheting, painting, or doing odd renovation projects around the house.
