Your finances are what drive your future. Our Primary Purpose: At first glance, financial planning might appear to be black and white...but at Huskey Financial, we focus on what gives your life color. When you envision your future, you aren't thinking of interest rates and stock returns, you're thinking of a lake house in a sentimental spot or the vacation your family has been dreaming of. When we envision your future, we focus on how to help you hit the financial goals that will get you where you want to be. We approach financial management in a way that makes you proud of your decisions. We understand that an investment portfolio makes up a small percentage of your overall wealth profile, and that your finances make up a small percentage of who you are. Your lifestyle, past expenses, and future plans are all integral components of making smart financial choices, which is why we get to know you as we get to know your portfolio. When you trust us to manage your assets, you can be certain that you'll receive advice that takes everything about your life into account, not just formulas based on your countdown to retirement. With financial education as one of our cornerstones, you will learn not only what we're doing with your money, but how the actions we're taking will help you have a secure wealth plan for every stage in your life. We will build a comprehensive financial plan that puts the things that matter the most to you at the forefront, so you can focus on building the future you want for your family.

Brad and his wife Carla live in Loris, SC and have been married for 21 years. He received his undergraduate degree from Clemson University and in 1995 attained a Series 6 and Series 63 Securities License as well as attended Trident University and The American College to obtain his insurance license and become certified by the LUTC in "Advanced Estate Planning". Brad has also graduated from Duke University's CFP (Certified Financial Planner) program. He is currently completing Harvard Business School's CORe program. The program focuses on Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, as well as Financial Accounting. Mr. Tunnell anticipates completing the curriculum mid-2020. Many advisers are compensated by commissions. This could possibly influence the advice that is provided. Therefore, he also holds a Series 65 Securities License and is bound to a "Fiduciary" duty as opposed to a "Suitability" duty. This is a very important distinction. Understanding that clients are in different stages of their lives is very important. They may be purchasing their first home, financing a child's college education, planning for retirement, or protecting and growing their savings while in retirement. We believe that a financial plan must reflect their personal situation.

About Global View, LLC

Global View is an independent, fee-ONLY Registered Investment Advisory firm headquartered in Greenville, SC. Our team of fiduciaries consisting of five Advisors and support staff work together to satisfy the needs of our clients. All of our partners are CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER TM Practioners. Your advisor will incorporate an understanding of income taxation and estate planning issues into investment management, and will work closely with accountants and attorneys to satisfy your needs. Because we are not affiliated with a major investment bank, we do not sell proprietary products. Our business as a fiduciary Registered Investment Advisory firm means that we only accept payment from our clients, and that our clients will never pay commissions, penalties, or any other unexpected fees. We believe this better aligns our interests with those of our client's, with the end goal of always helping the client attain their goal. Our practice is based on the fundamental principal that human beings often make errors in decision making that are avoidable. Behavioral research and market performance history clearly illustrate that individual investors suffer largely because they do not make choices based on a rational framework. We feel it is our responsibility to provide that framework to our clients and implement it for them based on their unique needs and circumstances including income goals, investment time horizon, survivorship needs, and estate and legacy planning.
