Vincent Parascandola, Established Financial Services Expert

Vincent Parascandola is the Senior Executive Vice President at AXA Advisors, LLC, an industry leading financial services organization, which provides strategic planning and wealth implementation for its clients. Prior to joining AXA, he worked for two well-respected life insurance companies, Prudential and MONY. Parascandola has earned recognition for his management skills, including receiving the Master Agency Award.

For over 17 years, Vincent Parascandola has held accreditation as a financial services expert and a registered broker-dealer. He has upheld a high standard of professional excellency for the past 25 years. In the financial services industry, two and half decades can seem like an eternity. But, examining Parascandola’s career path, you can see his intentions were set after graduating from Pace University in 1983 with a B.S. degree.

The New York native stayed within his home state and has always maintained an affiliation with his Alma Mater. Even being asked to be the keynote speaker at the 2014 commencement exercises. It appears Parascandola doesn’t have a lot of time for online chatter, because his Facebook page is very sparse, with only a few close friends. This is understandable given the fact that his time is allocated to different areas he oversees at AXA Advisors.

Within the organization, Vincent Parascandola is responsible for recruitment and sales, employee retention and productivity and management and development of newly hired and experienced financial services professionals. Although he has a great deal of responsibility, Vincent Parascandola is often sought out for outside speaking engagements. This is in addition to serving as board chairman for the Life Insurance Management and Research Association (LIMRA) Field Officers Committee.

Believe it or not, Vincent Parascandola professional obligations do not prevent him from being active in a community leadership role. He makes certain that as an organization, AXA Advisors provides educational assistance to young people across the United States. He also oversees the AXA Achievement Scholarship fund, which offers high school seniors merit awards in the amounts of $2,500, $10,000 and $25,000.
