portfolio trading assistant
Laura Fleites joined Munn Gray & Associates in 2022 as a portfolio trading assistant during her final semester of university. Her desire to learn and excel allowed her to quickly grasp the company’s investment philosophy and process and she now plays a critical role in managing clients’ investments.
Laura graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas where she received a Bachelor of Science in Finance. During university Laura took a position as an executive assistant for a real estate investment and development company. She also completed summer internships relating to marketing and business to consumer sales. Laura also partook in the launch of two career networking and job placement companies where she helped pair young cybersecurity and computer programming professionals, from under-privileged communities, with start-up companies that needed their expertise.
Laura has always had a passion for helping her community. Having immigrated from Cuba when she was 6 years old, she witnessed her family start from the very bottom to create a better life for themselves. This made her realize that with a little guidance, knowledge and sacrifice, anyone can enjoy a comfortable life. Laura hopes to be that guide to her clients so that they may dedicate their time to their families and their passions without financial worry.
In her downtime Laura enjoys going to the gym, reading mystery books, and listening to true crime podcasts. She loves going on walks with her dogs, Shiner and Ilyss, and spending time with her family.
