Check the background of this investment professional on FINRA's BrokerCheck.

CBSI is under contract with the Credit Union to make securities available to Members.

Rene has more than 20 years in the financial services industry and believes educating Members is essential to creating a solid financial plan. “If I can help them lay the foundation and build from there, we can put them on the road to success,” he says. 

Understanding Members’ goals helps him create a personalized plan so they can achieve them. “I want them to know that I am looking out for their best interests so the plan we create together leaves them feeling comfortable and confident and that it’s meeting their needs.” 

Rene is a fully registered and licensed investment and retirement planning professional. He earned his bachelor’s degree from CSU, Chico, and is registered to sell securities. 

When he’s not helping Members, Rene says he’s a “do-it-myselfer.” He enjoys building things, learning new skills and improving them wherever he can.
