Hi, I'm Simon


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

My passion is to build financial stability for younger professionals in their 20s, 30s and early 40s who want to ensure that they are financially organized, tax-optimized, saving enough money in an efficient way for retirement, that their kids have a college fund, they are prepared for emergencies and the stuff life will throw at them and that everything else in between is taken care of. What I really love to do, is 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.


I went to university in both London and France, and studied business and finance. I came to New York as a currency trader when my UK employer transferred me to their Wall Street office. I moved from foreign exchange to equity derivative trading, before transitioning to personal financial planning and earning 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 Registered Investment Advisor 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 Strategic Alliances. 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 and a key partner of Neuland Alliance


I have contributed articles and featured in videos on various financial planning topics to numerous media outlets, including Business Insider, Investopedia, CNBC, Asset TV, ConnectRoot, Savvy Parents and more. I also have my own podcast: Angles, and I am the host and presenter of the Financial Planning Association of New York's Personal Finance podcast. I have also written a book.

I look forward to meeting with you personally and learning how I can help you secure your financial future.
