Johnny Brown, CFP®
I am a Certified Financial Planner ™ and the President of Brown Capital Management, LLC in Little Rock, Arkansas. I have been in the investment industry since 1999 and have experience managing investments through two of the worst recessions and stock market bear markets in U.S. history (2000 – 2003 Technology Bust and the 2008 – 2009 Great Recession caused by the Sub Prime Mortgage Financial Crisis). What sets me apart from other financial advisors is my eight years of experience as an equity analyst. In this
I greatly enjoy bringing this level of knowledge to the table as I work with individuals, families, small businesses, and foundations to develop investment strategies designed to minimize risk and maximize returns using some of the most effective financial methods, such as Modern Portfolio Theory, Behavioral Finance, Behavioral Economics, and Value Investing. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree majoring in Finance from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Reynolds Business School. I hold the FINRA Series 65 license for financial advisors, and a license to sell life and health insurance in the state of Arkansas.
I have worked in the financial services industry since 1998, including 14 years at Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. as an advisor and paraplanner. At Brown Capital Management, I serve as a financial advisor and the Director of Client Service. My enthusiasm lies in getting to work with people on a daily basis and developing mutually satisfying relationships with our clients. I work with Johnny as part of a team providing wealth management, retirement planning, and insurance solutions for individuals, families, small businesses, and foundations.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. But after a few years in the environmental protection industry, my interest in working directly with people led me to the financial services industry. I hold the FINRA Series 65 license for financial advisors, and a license to sell life and health insurance in the state of Arkansas.
