Brayden Little joined Pettinelli Financial Partners in 2018 soon after he graduated Magna Cum Laude from San Jose State University with a degree in Business Administration and a concentration in Finance. He began his financial services career at the firm as a summer intern during his junior year at college. Shortly after graduation, he was hired as a paraplanner at PFP where he focused on supporting the firm’s advisor teams with building financial plans, client contact, support, follow-up, and research. Most recently, Brayden advanced to his current role as a financial advisor where his responsibilities have expanded to offering financial guidance and strategies to clients, assisting them in achieving their unique goals and intentions.
Building upon his experience and the culture at PFP, Brayden demonstrates his commitment to life-long learning in his pursuit of supporting the firm’s clients and advisor teams. His most recent accomplishments include the completion of the challenging FINRA licensing exams to gain his Series 7 and Series 65 licenses. In addition, Brayden earned advanced accreditations: Behavioral Financial Advisor (BFA™) and the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®). Just as important, he is currently in the process of completing the curriculum to achieve the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER accreditation (CFP®).
Brayden also thrives on taking leadership roles in whatever he does. At San Jose State, he directed a team of 5 to perform in-depth financial and investment analysis on Salesforce, Inc., a leading Client Relationship Management technology platform. In addition, he served in the role of CEO for a student-managed investment fund leading a team of 22 analysts and 5 board members.
A native of San Jose, he is passionate about community outreach through his church by taking an active leadership role in the young adult's group. One of his favorite quotes and a philosophy that Brayden lives by is: “You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the world for someone.” Brayden enjoys outdoor adventures and wine/beer tastings with family and friends.
