Harford Financial Group’s Angelilli and Sieracki Earn Series 7 License


Series 7 license is the professional credential for working in the securities industry

Harford Financial Group’s Bryan Angelilli and John Sieracki IV have earned their Series 7 license. The Series 7 license is offered by FINRA, a government-authorized not-for-profit organization that oversees broker-dealers in the United States. It is the professional license needed to work in the securities industry.

Angelilli, a registered representative at Harford Financial Group, joined the firm in 2023. He is also an adjunct professor at Harford Community College.

Sieracki, also a registered representative, began his career at Harford Financial Group as an intern while studying financial economics as a student at UMBC and joined the firm full time after graduation.

Both Angelilli and Sieracki are on the Certified Financial Planner™ track to become advisors. The CFP designation ensures that clients receive a holistic approach to the financial planning process to assist with the five pillars of financial planning: managing retirement income, asset management, asset protection, tax management, and estate and legacy planning.

Holding the Series 7 license indicates that the recipient has the required knowledge regarding the industry including types of securities, regulations that must be followed and how to recommend securities. Upon receiving the Series 7 license, the recipient is required to complete continuing education to stay up to date with trends and regulations. Recommending and choosing securities is under Harford Financial Group’s asset management pillar of holistic financial planning, the process that the firm’s advisors utilize.

There are several steps involved in obtaining the Series 7 license including passing two exams— Securities Industry Essentials Exam (also known as the SIE Exam) and the General Securities Representative Qualification Examination (GS).

“All of us at Harford Financial Group are so proud of Bryan and John for the hard work they have put in to receive the Series 7 license. Making sure our team has the appropriate education, certifications and experience to provide holistic and comprehensive financial planning to our clients is our goal,” said Adam Freeland CFP™, managing principal of Harford Financial Group. “As a firm, we are deeply committed to the best customer service possible, and the accomplishments of Bryan and John further that commitment.”
