Director | COO


Lauren Casagrande has worked hard to simplify the retirement planning process by helping clients overcome all the possible obstacles that can make saving complex.

As a Sociology and Business Administration graduate from the State University of New York at Albany, Lauren handles employer-sponsored retirement plans for various local businesses, as well as multinational corporations.  "I've been with Gateway over 15 years because the advisors here value educating new investors, as it is never too early to start.  We believe investing in a retirement plan accompanied with appropriate risk and diversification is the key to successful saving.”

She currently holds the following registrations: Series 7, 63, 66 and separately, Life Insurance / Accident and Health Insurance / Fixed Annuities /Variable life and Variable Annuities Licenses.  Most recently, she attained the designation of an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF), indicating her commitment to carry out a fiduciary standard of care and serve the best interests of her clients.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys family time with her husband and two daughters.  She actively participates in various events such as the MS walk at Jones Beach for the National MS Society, the Breast Cancer Walk of the American Cancer Society, and even running a half marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
