Maurice Blond Agency Partners with Park Avenue Securities

As president of The Maurice Blond Agency, Inc., in New York City, Laurel Blond has been providing clients with health, life, long term care, and disability insurance for years. However, as insurance comprises only one part of a person’s financial portfolio, she has reached out to another organization in an effort to direct her clients to top-flight investment services.

Laurel Blond has chosen to work with Park Avenue Securities (PAS) in order to provide these services to her clients. Based out of an office on Hanover Square in New York City, the company has been helping clients as The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America’s retail broker/dealer operation for more than a decade. PAS offers advice to clients on many stages of their financial lives, including planning for home buying and having children, working through mid-life events like career changes or divorce, and preparing for retirement.
