Bradley Wealth reaches $100M in AUM

Bradley Wealth, an independent boutique wealth management firm, announces two significant milestones – reaching $100 million in assets under management (AUM) and moving its operations from San Diego to its new office in North Scottsdale.

Bradley Wealth serves 300 clients across the country and has averaged more than 25 percent annualized growth for the past five years. The firm attributes reaching $100 million in total market value of all client investments to its commitment to protect and enhance its clients’ wealth over time, in a conservative and prudent manner, without taking excessive risk. It accomplishes this by pairing public equities, growth/defensive fixed income strategies and numerous alternative investment asset classes, including private equity, hedge funds and private debt, together.

“Bradley Wealth exists to help clients achieve their greatest return on life, true wealth. Our mission each day is to exceed expectations, and to surprise and delight our clients,” said Michael Bradley, CEO of Bradley Wealth. “Achieving $100 million AUM came about with a momentous velocity of growth, laser focus on our culture and a concerted effort from a team that is like family. We’ve only just scratched the surface and with the momentum we have in place, exceeding 100M is absolutely achievable.”  

To accommodate its significant growth, Bradley Wealth recently relocated its operations from San Diego to its new, nearly 3,500 square foot space in North Scottsdale located at 16430 N. Scottsdale Rd. Ste. 230. The new office space was designed by SmithGroup to bring together “at-home” comfort with the sophistication of wealth management. The office design features an open concept with exposed brick, warm wood, a wall mural, a contemporary kitchen and living room space and includes a meditation room. It has the capacity to house 15 team members, including pre-existing Scottsdale employees, three employees who relocated from the Bradley Wealth office in San Diego and additional wealth advisors that the firm plans on hiring.
