Our Story

The story of Calibrate Wealth Partners began in the 1970s with two individual advisors, Dave Halvorson of Fargo, North Dakota, and Ernie Stiba of Waco, Texas.

In their home communities, Dave and Ernie each spent decades building their own businesses. Along the way, they each raised sons to whom they would successfully pass on the legacy of their business.

With a vision to create a platform with shared knowledge and expertise, those two sons have chosen to amplify the organizations founded by their fathers and create a powerful joint venture to expand their presence nationally.

The two sons, Matt Halvorson and Eric Stiba, were introduced in 2014 at an industry conference and found that friendship came easily to them. As their personal and business relationships grew deeper, they realized that not only were their businesses complimentary to each other, they were also philosophically aligned with how they treat their clients.

Each of the firms had a shared belief in a client-first focus.They would use their individual expertise to guide clients and find the most efficient ways for them to invest and enjoy the money they earned. This provided a clear path forward for Matt and Eric to provide the best value in a team-based environment.

In 2022, Calibrate Wealth Partners was launched, providing an individualized white-glove approach for clients in communities across the country.
