Background & Education

Brian is a native to Texas & strongly believes that by investing in his education he can serve clients by sharing his insight & technical knowledge to provide understandable sound advice & planning.

He graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Economics & a Minor in Business Management. After graduation, he joined a large financial services company where he worked for 7 years learning about & putting to use industry leading investment & wealth management strategies & techniques to help meet client goals. In this time he also earned the 2014 Fast Start Award, & was recognized as a retirement benefits specialist.

In the Fall of 2020, Brian seized the opportunity to better serve his clients by going independent & created McCaffrey Wealth Management with the mission to help clients work toward financial security & prosperity. Going independent removes many company specific limitations on his practice & provides greater access to tools, software & investment options to better meet client goals.

With the intention to further expand his knowledge & his practice's capabilities, Brian completed the Rice University CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Graduate Certificate Education Program in May of 2023 & passed the CFP® Board Exam that summer to obtain his CFP® designation, one of the most highly respected professional designations in the industry.
