Good Life Companies Adds Two Advisors From Banking Channel

Advisors Paul Castro and Erik Steudle recently joined Good Life, an LPL Financial large enterprise, from UnionBanc Investment Services and Ameriprise, respectively.

Reading, Pa.-based Good Life Companies, a large LPL Financial enterprise firm, has recruited advisors Paul Castro and Erik Steudle, both former bank channel advisors with a combined $150 million in client assets.

Castro, who joins from UnionBanc Investment Services, has created Pathway Wealth Management in Riverside, Calif., an independent practice affiliated with Good Life.

“As a founder of a new financial advisory business, I may not have all the answers or resources on my own,” Castro said in a statement. “But with Good Life Companies as an enabling partner, I can enjoy the entrepreneurialism and freedom of serving my clients according to my vision of support, with the confidence and security that comes from the certainty of having comprehensive support that is ready to help me fill in the gaps whenever necessary.”

Steudle, who comes over from Ameriprise, will join Good Life of NOVA (Northern Virginia), an independent team in Arlington, Va. that has been affiliated with Good Life since 2018. That team, founded by Josh Strange, specializes in serving current and retired federal government employees, contractors and service members in the Armed Forces.

Good Life has a national network of over 200 advisors and 350 insurance professionals. It oversees $4 billion in total client assets, and has added $415 million over the last year.

Good Life was founded by Conor Delaney, who shared his personal story on an episode of Transparency with Diana B. earlier this year. Delaney says he used his problems to build a business that would positively impact both advisors and clients.
