About Greg Feirman – Founder and CEO, Top Gun Financial Planning

Growing up, I had the benefit of learning from my father, Robert Feirman, real estate investor and founder of The Feirman Corporation.  Dad has invested in and operated apartment, office and retail properties for 30 years.  I learned a lot from him and benefitted by his example. 

At UC San Diego I majored in Philosophy and minored in Economics (with a specialization in Finance), receiving my B.A. in June of 2000. My GPA in courses within my major and minor was over 3.9.

During my last year of college I worked at the Morgan Stanley office in Carlsbad, CA as an assistant to a broker. I talked to people about their investments and did some research as well.

After college I took a job as a Research Associate at Economic Analysis LLC, now a part of LECG Corporation (NASDAQ: XPRT). This job proved very valuable to me as I learned to analyze financial statements, research companies and markets and became an expert with Excel.

I completed my M.A. in Philosophy from UC Davis in December of 2005. While at Davis, I was a Teaching Assistant, running my own classes and grading student work, for Contemporary Ethical Issues and Critical Thinking courses.

I am a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) in the state of California.
