M. Radcliff Lowery, a native of the Grand Strand, began his career in the financial field in 2001 as a CPA for one of the world's "Big 4" accounting firms in Greenville, South Carolina. After returning home to the Grand Strand area in 2003, he began working for a smaller CPA firm and began cross-training in the financial services industry. Realizing that he wanted more independence so he could better facilitate his client's needs, he started his own Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm. In 2013 Rad became a partner of Carolina Wealth Advisors.
Coming from a family of teachers, education was heavily encouraged when Rad was growing up. This passion for learning took hold early on and continues today. Rad dually majored in Finance and Accounting earning his Bachelor of Science degree from Coastal Carolina University, and earned his Master of Finance degree from Pennsylvania State University. Rad also maintains the following professional credentials: Certified Public Accountant, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, and Personal Financial Specialist.
Rad lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with his wife, Adrienne, two boys, Isaac and Kane, and their 'large' orange tabby cat, Rascal. Outside of the office Rad spends most of his time with his family, fulfilling his role of being husband and father.
