Laura Gustafson, CFP®
“Teaching and the sharing of knowledge is what I enjoy most. When meeting with clients, it is my goal to impart even a small piece of information that they may not have known prior to our conversation. There is so much that goes into a person’s financial life, and I strive to make that journey informed and transparent.”
Laura joined Shorepoint Capital Partners in 2023. She assists the partners in the development and presenting of wealth management plans to clients. She works directly with our clients, responding to account inquiries, coordinating solutions to client requests and during the onboarding process.
In addition, Laura is an adjunct professor at her alma mater, Rhode Island College, and teaches an elective within the master’s program she graduated from. She earned her CFP® certification in order to attain her goal of financial planner in order to help people navigate through the overabundance of financial decisions that life brings.
