While working at large financial firms like Bankers Life and Casualty and New York Life Insurance Company, Carlos became frustrated by the limits on the services he could offer clients. As a result, He opened Dias & Associates in 2007.
Carlos has focused on retirement planning, but over time, strategic tax planning, investment advisory, wealth management and other critical financial services were all added to his services list.
