Managing Director, Wealth Manager

Raised by a single parent, Aaron Brachman witnessed the power of hard work and self-reliance growing up. His force-of-nature mother would instill many lasting values in these formative years, laying the groundwork for his career.

Aaron entered the industry in 1999 as an intern to the Vice Chair of Ferris, Baker Watts, Inc. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance from The George Washington University in 2002, he continued his professional journey with The Washington Wealth Group at Ferris, Baker Watts, Inc. Aaron then made history in 2006 by becoming one of the youngest partners in the firm at age 26. In addition to his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification, he earned the Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS®) designation.

Aaron’s primary role as a Founding Partner and Managing Director is to create and monitor all client portfolios and perform asset manager due diligence. Additionally, he directs the pro-bono efforts of The Washington Wealth Group, teaching budding professionals and the children of clients the basics of finance through the Next Generation Initiative.

Outside of work, Aaron leads an active lifestyle with his wife and young son. Much to his wife’s chagrin, his free time is often spent researching macro-economic policy decisions. Aaron also volunteers alongside Chris at Year Up, an organization that empowers low-income youth to go from poverty to professional careers within a single year.

Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. owns the certification marks CFP®, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, CFP® (with plaque design) and CFP® (with flame design) in the U.S., which it awards to individuals who successfully complete CFP Board’s initial and ongoing certification requirements.
