Meet the team at Godfrey Financial Associates

Kathleen Godfrey, President

I believe everyone deserves peace of mind in a complex financial world.

I believe that most consumers benefit from objective, unbiased, personal financial advice.

I believe that minimizing fees and expenses can boost your returns. I believe you have the right to know what you’re getting, and what you’re paying, for financial services.

I believe in going the extra mile, because I truly care about your success.

For over 20 years, my company has stood for integrity, transparency, and honesty in all we do. As fiduciaries, we put your interests first, even when it’s not profitable for us to do so.

Godfrey Financial is deeply committed to the Capital Region: in 2000 I instituted a corporate policy to give back to our community. Each year, we donate at least 10 percent of our net profits to local nonprofit organizations.

I am committed to making a difference, and give my time and resources to organizations that move me, including:

  • Woman in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS) – Past National President

  • Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce

  • Rotary Club of Albany

  • Women President’s Organization

  • Forum for Executive Women (FEW)

  • Girl Scouts of Northeastern NY

  • St. Anne Institute

  • Habitat for Humanity

  • Capital Region Sponsor-A-Scholar,

Benny, Dash, and Wally.

Your Welcoming Committee (the dogs)

When you arrive at Godfrey Financial, you are welcomed by our enthusiastic trio of pups, Dash, Wally, and Benny. Dash is an extremely enthusiastic dachshund who spends his workdays with Benny and Wally, the office's standard poodles.

*Please note: The dogs are always put away when our clients & friends let us know they prefer NOT to be greeted so enthusiastically. We accommodate your personal comfort level.
