Check the background of this investment professional on FINRA’s BrokerCheck.
To James, every dollar has a story. “I love hearing people tell their stories. It’s what this line of work is all about,” he says. He’s passionate about what he does. His first clients were his parents. His second? His sister. He practices what he preaches and jokes that if he weren’t doing a good job, his whole family would have to move in with him!
An economics graduate of The University of Texas at Austin and die-hard Longhorns fan, it’s safe to say that James’ affinity for the Longhorns runs deep. It’s only fitting that he’d apply for a job with UFCU immediately after graduating.
James serves Members primarily from our University and Plaza locations, and has focused his practice on serving educators and millennials. If there is a question about benefits for the Teacher Retirement System of Texas or the Employees Retirement System of Texas, James has the answer.
James is a native Austinite but spent his early years (until age 7) in Colombia, where he became fluent in Spanish. He is active in his community and tutors at-risk children with the Neighborhood Longhorn Program. When he’s not working or studying in his spare time, he enjoys playing sports, traveling, and spending time with his family and two pups, Rocky and Marley.
