The investment climate has never been more exciting or more challenging than it is today. To take advantage of all available opportunities, investors need two things: an understanding of which investment products are most appropriate for their situation and a relationship with a trustworthy advisor who has a clear understanding of their needs. By keeping clients’ objectives in focus, staying in contact with them throughout all market conditions and making investment adjustments as economic or lifestyle conditions warrant, I maintain a constant commitment to putting service first. As a full-service financial advisor since 2001, I offer clients an assortment of quality, non-proprietary investment choices that are filtered with over a decade of experience, wisdom, intuition, patience and discernment as well as intelligence. If you would like further information about these topics, or any other area of investing, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 951-710-9600, Ext. 109 or lespinoza@ffec.com. I can help you make sense of today’s investment climate.

Kenneth M. Creta

Vice President – Investments

Returning home from overseas in 1969, I accepted my honorable discharge from the military. I immediately applied and was accepted to start a new career as a Registered Representative (Financial Advisor) on Wall St. with the old Bache & Co. Forty-one years later I still love what I do and the people that I work with. My clients are my friends and they employ me to help them achieve their financial goals.

Most of my clients are getting ready to retire or have retired already. We tend to agree that the primary objective is protecting what they have accumulated and look forward to using during their retirement. They all want and need some growth and they, and I, believe in proactive management. In times such as these you cannot ignore what is going on and “buy and hold” has failed too often.  I meet regularly with clients to review account performance and to be sure that things are going in the right direction and make alterations if necessary.

I have no minimum account size, but it is difficult to manage less than $100,000 for purely practical reasons. I invest in stocks, municipal and corporate bonds, annuities, and life insurance products where appropriate. I also use a few specialty investments if they fill a need.
