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.
