Deborah Castiglioni, RICP®

Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

I began my career in the insurance and financial industries in 1983. In 1988, my business partner and I opened Cutter & Company. Our goal was to focus on recruiting financial advisors that wanted to be independent. This was a rather rare approach at that time, and allowed the financial advisor to create, run and grow their own firms. In 1995 I was named Chief Executive Officer.


For many years I served in the Chief Compliance Officer (“CCO”) role. In fact, I still serve as the CCO for the Investment Advisor division of the firm. To keep up with complex rules and regulations, I became actively engaged on many industry committees and Boards. I was a member of the FINRA Small Firm Advisory Board (my second time serving), and the FINRA Regulatory Council for Continuing Education in 2011 (3 and 4 year terms respectively), among many other industry related committees. I also served as Chair of FINRA’s District 4 Committee in 2005. I was a Board member of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (“SIFMA”) from 2006 - 2008 and currently participate on the Private Client Committee and Advisory Council.


I hold the following licenses: Series 7, 24, 65, 55 and 87. I also hold a life, health and variable insurance license. I obtained my Retirement Income Certified Professional (“RICP”) designation offered by the American College in 2018. In my free time, I love boating, spending time with my granddaughters and watching a beautiful sunset.
