Bradley Shammas, CFP®
During the 2008 financial crisis, I watched helplessly as family and friends lost their income, their jobs, and their homes.
It was a difficult time for many people, and a desire to help eventually drove me to pursue a career as a financial planner after I finished my Business and Economics degree. I have been working in the financial planning industry since 2010, and with the advice and support of my mentors, I established IWM Financial.
In 2012, I married the love of my life, a few years later we welcomed our daughter Penelope, and a few years later our son Alexander. They are the most adorable little children on the planet (but I might be a little biased).
I am deeply committed to my family, so I strive to live a life full of passion and purpose in order to be a better husband and father. Likewise, my faith is an integral part of my life and this molds my personal and professional relationships.
I earned a double major in Business Administration and Economics at California State University, Fullerton.
I am a CFP® Certificate Holder, completing my education at UCLA.
I’m a California native, living in Riverside, operating my business out of North Orange County, and am an active member of my church
Life of a young professional includes making a lot of big life decisions: buying homes, combining finances with a significant other, changing jobs, paying off loans, advancing educations, and more. There are tons of ways a CFP® can help guide these decisions with intentional advice.

Our Focus Areas:
The majority of our clients need support in the following areas:
CFP® professionals are held to strict ethical standards. What’s more, a CFP® professional must acquire several years of experience related to delivering financial planning services to clients and pass the comprehensive CFP® Certification Exam before they can call themselves a CFP® professional.
Our clients tend have high income ($180,000-$1,200,000/year), which leads them to having daunting tax burdens, and want to do something about it.
Most young professionals don’t consider themselves as “rich”. However, the consistent act of saving regularly and faithfully will lead to meeting the big picture, long-term goals.
Our most valuable asset is our time. Most of our clients want to spend their free time with their families and friends, not worrying about their finances, so they seek an expert for guidance.
If you associate with these qualities, the next step if you contact our office to decide if we should work together.
