Broker Check


We believe in an uncommon approach that combines growth and protection. We will work with you to understand your needs and set your goals.

While protection is the core building block to any grounded financial plan, there are additional ways to complement your risk management strategy to further help you grow and protect your assets. It’s important to build a financial plan that considers your goals, objectives, and concerns, and evolves as your life changes. There are many different sources of information, strategies to consider, investments to choose from, and decisions to be made.

However, a singular mission meant to achieve financial balance that’s backed by an uncommon approach can help you take control of where you want to be.

It’s important to have confidence in the strength and stability of those that stand behind you and your financial representative. Your financial representative utilizes Park Avenue Securities LLC, a broker/dealer that is an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), which has a rich heritage of promises kept since 1860.
