Luz Rosado Recognized by Forbes for a Second Year in a Row
Luz Rosado, a Bronx Community College graduate and member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors, and the 2022 commencement speaker has once again been recognized by Forbes as “Best in State Wealth Management Teams.” This is the second year in a row she has been recognized by Forbes for her work as a Senior Vice President of International and Wealth Advisor at Merrill Lynch. She joined Merrill Lynch in 2006 and manages accounts ranging from $1 – 148 million in assets.
An immigrant from the Dominican Republic, Luz spoke no English when she arrived at BCC in 2002. She enrolled in the CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP). After successfully completing this program, she was accepted at BCC. She graduated in May 2005 with a degree in Marketing Management.
She went on to receive her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Management and Psychology from the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College in May 2008.
At Merrill Lynch, Luz collaborates with clients to achieve their individual financial goals by helping them navigate the global markets and identifying opportunities that align with their objectives. She strives to be a bridge between her client’s needs and the vast amount of resources available at Merrill, providing them with the tools to take care of their wealth and aid in the transition to future generations.
In 2019 Luz was recognized on the Forbes “Best-in-State Next Generation Wealth Advisors” list and Working Mother’s “Top Wealth Advisor Moms” list.
Luz joined the BCC Foundation Board of Directors because she wanted to give back to the school that helped her achieve her goals. It is her hope that other students will have the same opportunities that she did. Her commencement speech focused on two themes: dreaming big and having the courage to pursue these dreams.
The BCC family congratulates Luz on her achievements. We are fortunate to have her expertise on the Foundation’s Board.
