Meet Raleigh Galiano

Raleigh J. Galiano, Jr., CFP®
LPL Financial Advisor

Raleigh Galiano established Galiano Wealth Management Group in 2012 to serve a growing need for independent, objective financial guidance among individuals, business owners and oil and gas executives in Lafourche and surrounding parishes. He brings more than two decades of financial services industry experience to clients seeking personal wealth management strategies aligned with their goals and lifestyle needs.

For more than 22 years, Raleigh has served as a personal financial advisor for multiple generations of his clients, providing guidance on investment planning, risk management, retirement planning, retirement income planning and estate planning. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ professional, he adheres to a high standard of ethics and integrity as set forth by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. He believes his education, credentials, experience and desire to provide clients with independent, objective advice serve to differentiate him among today’s broad field of financial advisors.

Raleigh graduated from Nicholls State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. While in college, he worked in the tax division of an established CPA firm where he gained valuable experience in order to work with his clients' CPA's and attorneys. While Galiano Wealth Management Group does not provide tax advice, Raleigh's goal is to coordinate the advice of multiple professional advisors to ensure each client’s financial, tax and estate planning strategies are fully aligned with their specific needs and goals.

Following college, Raleigh spent four years working at his family’s marine dealership before entering the insurance business where he worked for one of the nation’s leading insurance companies. Seeking an opportunity to serve a broader range of his clients’ financial needs, he began his career as a full-service financial advisor in the banking industry, followed by 16 years at a well-known national brokerage firm. In 2012, Raleigh chose to partner with LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker/dealer* in establishing his own independent financial services firm. This strategic alliance continues to provide his rapidly growing client base with access to the strength, stability and robust tools and resource available through LPL Financial. Most recently, he was recognized as a top financial advisor and named to the 2017 LPL Financial Patriot's Club.
