STATEN ISLAND, NY – Congratulations to Debra A. Feaser, who has achieved Private Wealth Advisor status with Ameriprise Financial.

And as if it were not an honor in itself, she was also named to the list of “Forbes Best-in-State Women Wealth Advisors” published by Forbes Magazine.

The list recognizes financial advisors who have demonstrated high levels of “ethical standards, professionalism, and success in business.” Feaser is among 13% of Ameriprise’s approximately 10,000 financial advisors to achieve the rank of wealth advisor.

To become eligible, advisors must be experienced in providing an in-depth approach to financial planning and advice, undergo specialized training and achieve exceptional business results.

The statistics are based on data provided by thousands of the most productive advisers in the country. She was chosen based on her assets under management, industry experience, compliance record and best practices in her practice and approach to working with clients.

Feaser is part of The Feaser and Eisenbraun Group, a private wealth advisory firm of Ameriprise Financial Services Inc., located at Corporate Commons 3 in Bloomfield.

She has 27 years of experience in the financial services industry and approximately four years with Ameriprise Financial.

She and her husband Michael are the parents of two daughters, Suzanne Cocozza and Jillian Eisenbraun, and the grandparents of four children, John Ross Cocozza, Kara Cocozza, Michael Eisenbraun and Joseph Eisenbraun Feaser is also the daughter of Domenica and Mel Kling, real estate brokers with Kling Real Estate, Ltd.
