Brady Wilkins

LPL Financial Advisor

Brady Wilkins has been a Financial Advisor at Waddell & Reed since December 2019, and in the industry for nearly 18 years.  His focus is on helping individuals and small business owners create “Financial Freedom” in all aspects of their lives focusing on Retirement Planning, College Planning, and Wealth Preservation/Transfer strategies.


Brady played football for the University of Missouri before finishing his bachelor’s at the University of St. Francis with a major in Marketing and a minor in Economics


Growing up in a small farming community 60 miles South of Chicago in Wilmington, IL the hard work and family first mentality was instilled at a young age.  Brady now resides in Lemont, IL with his son Brayden.  If you cannot find him at the office or home, he is likely chasing Brayden around the yard, working out, or riding his motorcycle.

At Waddell & Reed we spend our days focused on the ‘what if’ scenarios of the lives of our clients.  Here are some ‘what if’ scenarios of our own:

What if you could only give one piece of financial advice? What would it be? 
Plan for all the precious moments while living life to the fullest!

What if you had the day off to do anything you wanted? What would you do?
Take my son to a Mizzou football game

What if you had the job you wanted when you were 5 years old? What would you be doing?

Running back for the Dallas Cowboys

What if you had to describe yourself in three words?

Dedicated, Loyal, Integrity
