Arisleyda joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 1994 after interning with the Firm during graduate school. Her long tenure in the industry has given her witness to a variety of challenging markets and economic landscapes. The lessons she has learned have proven invaluable as she helps guide clients through today’s complex, ever changing investment environment on the path to achieving their most cherished financial goals.
In addition to working with a diverse clientele, Arisleyda has a nuanced understanding of the needs of professional women who in recent years have become a stronger financial force. With longer life expectancies, women are spending more years in retirement and are faced with increased health care costs and greater exposure to the effects of inflation on their long-term savings. Working together, Arisleyda strives to help them achieve greater financial freedom and build a life in retirement that suits their unique objectives and helps eliminate the possibility of outliving their wealth.
Giving back to the community in which she lives and works is a priority for Arisleyda. She is currently a member of the Investments & Wealth Institute™ (The Institute), the Junior League of Greenwich, the Women in Leadership at Hofstra University, Rotary International, and is a past board member of the American Red Cross. She also serves as a mentor with Starfish Connection, an organization providing mentorship, guidance and advocacy for underserved students in the Stamford area.
After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Finance from the State University of New York at Old Westbury, she earned her M.B.A. in International Business from Hofstra University’s Zarb School of Business. In addition to earning the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA) certification and the Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM (CRPC) designation from the College for Financial Planning and the Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor (CPFA) credential from National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA), Arisleyda holds the FINRA Series 7 and 66 registrations as well as life, health and long term care insurance licenses. She is also fluent in Spanish.
Arisleyda currently lives in Stamford, Connecticut with her husband, Ralf. In her spare time she enjoys playing golf, skiing and spending time with her friends and family.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
