Wealth Management Advisor

Guy A. Paredes, Executive Vice President of Rockdale Financial Services, Inc. has helped hundreds of individuals and families create a healthy and secure financial future since 1980.  As a member of the Rockdale team, Guy has a mission to assist clients in defining their financial and retirement goals, and set them on a path to achieving them.  Guy continually strives to be his clients' most valuable asset in this process.

As one of eight children in a working-class New Jersey suburb, Guy learned that even with limited resources, careful planning can help you achieve your life and financial goals.  The lessons Guy learned from his parents helped inspire his financial planning career and a mission to help others attain their goals.

After running his own financial planning company for many years, Guy merged his company with Rockdale Financial Services in 2010, happily rejoining Steve Richman, his lifelong friend, with whom he'd started his career.  With a shared commitment to excellence, the merger provides Rockdale Financial Services clients with an even greater depth and breadth of knowledge and experience.

With over 42 years of professional, focused experience, along with a careful vision of the future, Guy is committed to helping Rockdale Financial Services clients pursue the financial goals that will make a measurable difference in their lives.

Born and raised in New Jersey Guy balances his time between offices in New Jersey and Florida.  Guy greatly enjoys helping people achieve their financial and lifestyle goals.  His biggest joys in life are his wife Laura and his three daughters, Melinda, Allison, and Sarah.  Guy also has a passion for fishing, the Old West, history, and antiques.
