Byron Harlan had an award-winning career in broadcast news that spanned 30-years, before he decided to fulfill a dream he’d had for decades to become a Financial Planner. The pillars of his practice are embedded in four core concepts: compassion, truth, transparency, and independence.


Byron has a bachelor’s degree in political science from UCSD, a master’s degree in journalism from USC and an MBA from UC Irvine. He holds the RICP® planning designation and is halfway through the curriculum for his CFP® designation.

Byron has finished eight marathons, is in the hall-of-fame at his high school for basketball and baseball, enjoys extended, up-tempo bike rides, and is not afraid to break-out a yoga pose, or two. He plays a five-string, upright bass, and a five-string fretless bass, the mandolin, and dabbles a bit on the viola. He’s recorded many songs, which he will happily share with you and overlooks San Diego Bay from his home.

He’s married to Judi Harlan, who he readily admits, is smarter than him. She too is a Financial Planner, who holds the ChFC® designation. They have a son, August Cash Harlan, who is a
Tae-Kwon-Do martial artist, a soccer stand-out, and a gamer. He attends a German language
school and is also learning to speak Spanish. His English is pretty good too.
