Charles "Chuck" L. Failla, CFP®
Chuck understands the importance of working as a Fiduciary and uses those standards to oversees the financial planning and investment management work done at Sovereign Financial.
As a Board Certified Financial Planning™ practitioner, Chuck understands that sheparding a client’s financial and retirement plan requires more than simply “picking investments”. Instead, he applies his experience as a CFP® professional to coordinate all aspects of a client’s financial picture: goals, investments, taxes, liabilities, and, estate / legacy planning. By following this disciplined approach, he is able to ensure all aspects of a client's financial and estate planning needs are properly coordinated and continuously monitored.
In addition to working with clients, Chuck is a regular speaker and commentator on financial topics and has been featured in Forbes, The New York Daily News, Reuters, CBS Market Watch and numerous other media outlets. Chuck is also committed to the financial planning community and advancing the cause of financial literacy. To that end, he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Financial Planning Association of Connecticut as the Chairperson of their Pro Bono / Public Outreach Committee. Chuck is also active in the National Financial Planning Association, American Mensa and other non-profits in the CT & NYC Metro area.
Chuck received his degree in Finance from The University of Connecticut and completed his coursework for the CFP® certification with The American College. He resides in North Stamford, CT with his wife, two children and their Black Lab and cats. In his spare time, Chuck enjoys all things outdoors -- on the weekends you will find him with his family hiking, camping, skiing, boating or just enjoying the trees while grilling in the backyard.
