Hi, I'm Simon ..

Investopedia Advisor Insights talks to Simon about Anglia Advisors' financial planning practice.

I am Simon Brady, CFP®, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ originally from the UK. I have extensive experience in London's financial district and on Wall Street and as a financial advisor at the United Nations in New York.

I grew up in London and went to university both in my hometown and in Reims, France to study business and finance. I came to New York as a currency trader when my UK employer transferred me to their Wall Street operation. I moved from foreign exchange to equity derivatives before transitioning to personal financial planning and obtaining my CFP® designation. I worked as a financial advisor at the United Nations headquarters in New York, and I am the founder and principal of my own NYC-based firm, Anglia Advisors.

I am proud to serve on the Board of Directors of the Financial Planning Association of New York and act as its Director of Public Awareness, responsible for organizing its flagship annual event, the Financial Fitness Workshop. I speak widely on personal finance at financial conferences, universities, libraries, corporations and workshops in the New York area as well as frequently publishing articles and being quoted on personal finance topics in national, local and specialist media. I am also a member of Investopedia's Advisor Insights team

Oh, and I have written a book.

But what I really love to do is to sit down with clients, listen to them explain their financial goals, concerns and dreams and figure out a way to help them achieve financial security and create wealth.

It's all up on my LinkedIn profile if you want more details. I look forward to meeting with you personally and learning how I can help you secure your financial future.
