Jay Fradenburg, AIF®

Financial Advisor

Focus on Equity Compensation

Jay has worked on the asset management distribution side of the industry for 25 years. In addition to educating advisors on investment offerings and economic trends, his role in the industry provided an understanding of the challenges clients face when it comes to financial planning.

Transitioning from his latest role as Vice President- Regional Director for Goldman Sachs, Jay is thrilled to share his expertise and the resources of Pearl Planning with clients. His focus on equity compensation will provide valuable insight for those individuals, and their families as they approach retirement.

Jay’s passion for helping people and solving complex problems naturally lead him to the next phase of his career as a Financial Advisor.

Financial Planning for Couples

Together with the Pearl Planning team, and his wife and partner Melissa Fradenburg, Jay looks forward to providing financial clarity to individuals and families through comprehensive financial planning.

The financial planning process can help couples collaborate on financial goals and make both partners to feel heard when it comes to finances.

Three Favorite Words

Optimistic | Empathetic | Resolute

Away from the office...

Jay enjoys a competitive round of golf, reading a good sci-fi or historic fiction novel, or enjoying Lake St Clair with his family. Jay originally met his wife and Pearl Planning Financial Advisor, Melissa Fradenburg while they were working for competing firms, so it nice to finally be together on the same team.
