Financial Associate, CUSO Financial Services L.P. (CFS)*
A registered CFS financial associate, Alex has been serving SkyOne members since 2015. With previous stint at AXA Equitable, Alex works closely with Geoff Palenik to provide financial planning services to SkyOne members.
With an affable personality, a keen ability to understand members needs, and a knack for explaining complex financial concepts in simple English, Alex has earned an excellent reputation in the financial industry and among SkyOne members.
Alex has earned the designation of Chartered Federal Employee Benefits ConsultantSM (ChFEBC℠) practitioner, which requires intensive training and a rigorous examination covering all federal employee benefits, including Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension, Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) pension, Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), life and health insurance, social security, and more. Air traffic controllers’ benefits have special provisions that differ from other federal employees, and earning the ChFEBC℠ designation means that he can help our federally employed members with their unique retirement needs.
Alex is passionate about helping people. He will not stop at simply developing a custom financial strategy for each member, but will also review performance and re-evaluate financial goals as needed. “I make it my personal responsibility to help our members meet their goals because I understand that behind every member there is a family affected by these financial decisions.”
Alex is firmly committed to building long-term relationships, and helps his members by tailoring their investment strategies and financial plans to fit their specific needs. To better help his members navigate the increasingly complex financial environment, Alex constantly expands his knowledge by keeping the pulse on the finance developments, economic trends, and technology. He also enjoys golfing and often indulges in New York Times best sellers.
