Considerations for Life's Uncertanties

About Paul Stawinski

I began my career as an advisor at Equitable. From there I was hired by AIG as an active advisor and VP of the Northeast. I was then given the opportunity to be the President of the AIG financial services company in Poland. Upon my return after my year abroad, I was made VP of the Sun American Broker-Dealer division of AIG nationally. I then was hired away by AXA/MONY to be a VP of the highest producing advisers in the company. About 7 years ago I decided to work full-time designing and implementing Financial Plans, and fulfilling the investment and insurance needs of my clients. It was the best decision of my career.

I believe I am uniquely qualified to be your financial advisor due to the broad background I have in the industry. I survived the adversity of losing my father very young and being an only child, I know how hard it is for a single mother to work and raise a child. My father left us with no Life Insurance or financial planning. As happens in life not everything goes as planned. I made a bad choice of a partner and ended up paying a fine for something I had no involvement in. It taught me to trust only myself and do what is right for my clients not for myself or others. I am now solely an independent Planner, I value my client relationships as a major part of my life. I live in Manhattan with my wife Melissa and my daughter Lea who is a practicing DVM, with our Dogs. My hobby is sailing, I am also a licensed USCG Captain.
