About Seth Grano

An accomplished financial planner as well as a skilled human resources professional, Seth Grano draws on a varied experience base. He began his career as a bankruptcy specialist in the mortgage industry, then transferred into operations as a market maker and desk trader in Spokane, Washington. There, Seth Grano collaborated with a colleague to oversee trading of all securities and led the structuring of accounts.

Working for American Beacon Partners to structure the opening of a new office in Nevada, Seth Grano developed a team that climbed to second-place ranking within the company in only three years. The same office ranked at the top for customer retention and satisfaction while Mr. Grano strengthened his experience in retail and institutional planning on the buy and sell sides. He actively managed the office's client relationships for six years, later transitioning to contracting, in which role he drew on his expertise in strategies and investment products. 

Now a processing manager for VS Associates in Canoga Park, California, Seth Grano holds Series 7, 55, 63, and 65 registrations from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority as well as credentials as a Certified Financial Planner and Retirement Income Certified Professional.
