Registered Financial Assistant
Cam joined Esdale Wealth Advisors in October 2021 as a financial assistant. He's since obtained his securities registrations (FINRA SIE, Series 7, and Series 66) as well as his MA life/health insurance licenses, and has subsequently been promoted to a Registered Financial Assistant. In this new role, Cam will still assist clients with administrative tasks such as address changes, processing cashiering requests, and setting clients up with online access, but he also has the ability to also accept trading requests in situations where he's appropriately licensed.
