Our CFS Advisors

For over ten years, UMassFive Financial & Investment Services, available through CUSO Financial Services, L.P. (CFS), has been assisting members in creating comprehensive financial plans to help meet life goals and reach major milestones. Whether it is planning for retirement, saving for your child’s future, or as a part of a well-balanced savings plan, our CFS Financial Advisors will work with you to find solutions that fit your individual needs.

Our CFS Financial Advisors understand member service. They take great care to conduct extensive research, generate individual solutions and investment options for members, while providing fact based financial advice while serving our clients. We will gladly review your current financial situation, give you a second opinion on your financial plans, and help chart a course for successful investing. It’s never too late–or too early–to get started.

Our department is spearheaded by three CFS Financial Advisors, and support from a Program Manager and an Associate.
