About Atsushi 'Alex' Kurosawa

My promise: to work tirelessly to help you achieve your goals. At Prudential, we are dedicated to building and maintaining close relationships with our customers– relationships founded on trust, respect and integrity. No matter what stage of life you find yourself in, as a Prudential Financial Professional, I can help you find solutions to your financial challenges. So whether you're 'Just Starting Out,' 'Settling into Retirement,' or somewhere in between, let's discuss your current financial situation, goals and challenges – and together we can help you meet your challenges.

I'm Most Proud Of: Hearing from clients about how our team helped improve their life. There's nothing better! Our value is in helping others.


Life Happens. Being prepared makes all the difference.

You have options when it comes to your financial future - no matter your life situation.

Living in Retirement

Discover how our annuity options can help you create income for retirement and may be right for your personal financial needs. A Traditional or Roth IRA can also be an option to help you save for the future with either tax-free growth or on a tax-deferred basis.

Protecting Your Family and Greatest Assets

Whether you are recently married, buying a house, taking care of a loved one or preparing to retire, each new stage of life is exciting and uncertain. Ensure you’re protected with life, auto, home, long-term care and disability insurance.

Saving for Retirement

Get help reaching your retirement goals on your terms with an annuity, 401(k) or IRA. An annuity can be a way to provide retirement income and defer year-end taxes, and an IRA and 401(k) give you options to save for the next phase of your life. See if one or all of these retirement vehicles are right for you.
