Gerald provides financial concierge service to business owners and key executives.
Back in college, if you had asked Gerald Radican if he could imagine a career in the financial services industry, the instant response would have been a resounding “no!” Yet in the summer of his junior year, Gerald was offered an internship to work with his brother-in-law, who was then building a financial planning practice in the Washington, D.C. area. Little did Gerald know at the time that his brother-in-law had a hunch he would be good at this business – and that there really was no internship program. “He thought, if I only got a taste of it, I might like it and stay,” laughs Gerald.
That hunch proved to be right on the mark: Gerald was a natural fit, and was licensed as a broker even before he graduated from college. “It was truly a great decision to get into this business and to this day, I am thankful for the guidance I received,” he says.
Now in its third decade of operation, Gerald’s financial planning practice continues to thrive. He attributes the strength of his practice to a commitment to building long term relationships with his clients. “If I can provide suitable advice and excellent service that gets people closer to their financial goals, I’m doing my job,” he says.
Gerald assists clients with diverse needs, ranging from wealth management and financial planning to personal life insurance and executive benefits. Clients experience a comprehensive approach offered through the partners at Veritas Financial, while taking advantage of Gerald’s particular subject matter expertise in risk management and his personal attention to their specific needs. “I help my clients address the financial issues in their lives that they know they should, but for any number of reasons don’t have the time or desire to,” Gerald explains.
Gerald earned his Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Radford University. He is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, and the Greater Washington Society of Financial Service Professionals.
Outside of work, Gerald enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and coaching sports. He resides in Lansdowne, Virginia, with his wife, Michele, and their two children.
