San Diego, Ca – Wendy Cundari, a Financial Advisor at San Metropolitan Credit Union (SD METRO), registered through CUNA Brokerage Services, Inc. has received the 2014 Women of Distinction award in recognition of her superior performance, value and overall contribution to the financial services industry.

Women of Distinction is an award presented by CUNA Brokerage Services, Inc. recognizing the top female financial advisors throughout the nation within their broker/dealer operation.

"Speaking directly to someone reading this message, I want you to know that working together with you, I can help you create a strategy geared towards meeting three key financial goals: 1) wealth accumulation during your working years, 2) security and independence in your retirement, and 3) transfer assets in the most advantageous way. Periodically we will review your situation and make adjustments as needed. It just makes sense – as your life changes, so do your financial needs and I’ll be here for you at every stage of your life."
