Christopher Aguele
Wealth Manager

Christopher started his career in the financial industry in 1996. In the late 90’s he successfully completed the Bear Sterns compliance training program and spent the next 10 years in various compliance roles. He worked as a senior compliance consultant with a supervisory role for a division of Sun Life Financial. In 2008 Chris began providing investment advice to retail clients at Astoria Federal Savings  (now Sterling Bank) and later with Peoples Securities a wholly owned subsidiary of Peoples United Bank. After recognizing some of the shortfalls with working in a traditional bank setting, he believed his clients would be better served by starting an independent firm.


American Strategic Advisors (ASA) was incorporated on the intent that customers’ financial needs are the top priority. He felt the specific needs of each client are more unique than any bank or large generic brokerage firm could satisfy.


ASA’s extensive analysis of each client’s current financial situation allows the team to provide them with a well-defined strategy to work toward personal financial success. Chris has earned his series 7,65,4,24,53 currently held by LPL Financial as well as Life Insurance licenses.


Chris has been a resident of Fairfield, CT for over 15 years. He loves spending time on the water, boating with his wife and three children.
