Janet Briaud, CFP®

Chief Investment Officer, Partner

Janet Briaud founded Briaud Financial Advisors in 1986 because she saw a need for a company that would treat clients the way she herself would want to be treated. At the time, many thought a financial firm that didn’t take commissions for selling products would be doomed to failure. Today, the “fee-only” model is the fastest growing segment of the financial advisory profession.

She has held leadership positions at all levels of the profession, including the board chair of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors. Her financial planning and investment advice has been featured in virtually every publication in the financial and trade press, along with some surprising ones like Men’s Health magazine.

Janet grew up in Canada, and is a fluent French speaker. Before moving to the United States in the late 1970s, she received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Physical Education from the University of New Brunswick and the University of Ottawa, respectively. An intellectually curious person, Janet loves to read, and spends much of her down time doing just that. As a former P.E. teacher, she also enjoys leading a fit lifestyle.

Above all else, Janet enjoys family life and values her time with her husband, two children, and two grandchildren.
