Catherine M Arambula, CLTC®

Financial Advisor


Mission and Planning Process

Catherine is a Financial Advisor who began her career in financial services at Northwestern Mutual in 2004 as career changer after personally dealing with the repercussions of misguided financial advice. Since then she has built a portfolio of clients with a clear mission - “To empower individuals to build their personal wealth and safeguard against life’s many changing stages.”

Minorities, professional women and their families are especially important to her, as she understands that they do not always follow a traditional life stage “road map”. Catherine focuses on supporting successful businesses, corporate executives and other high net worth individuals to achieve their individual goals and objectives. Catherine and her team offer a unique approach to the financial management process through an integration of five key components to comprehensive financial planning: risk management, investment strategies, estate planning, retirement income planning and business planning.

Community Engagement

Catherine continually gives of her time, talent and treasure to causes and organizations she feels strongly about. Whether it is helping others with their own personal or professional leadership development, community service or advocacy, Catherine is always ready and willing to connect and mentor. She believes in the ability to impact change through the power of volunteerism, community and civic engagement and that in order to advance our community it starts with oneself.
