Where Our Story Begins
Following a 12-year career working for Financial Service and Insurance Firms, founder Luis Whu abandoned the traditional Broker dealer model and crafted LULLA Wealth Financial – an independently owned firm.
Named after his two children, Luis created the firm he always envisioned. One where the focus is on helping others live their lives richly and without regrets, rather than dying rich and with regrets. Living better today rather than in the distant future. Starting with the client’s life in mind and end with their investments…not the other way around.
We maintain a culture of excellence and integrity in all that we do by adhering to the highest fiduciary standards and acting in your best interest 100% of the time. The recommendations we make are part of a collaborative process that reflects multiple perspectives and areas of expertise. There is no substitute for the skills and judgment that come from having decades of hands-on experience managing money.
At LULLA our passion lies on helping you align your money with your life, we want to free up your time to enjoy what matters most to you. Knowing that no two people are the same – no two financial plans should be either. Our structure is designed to allows us the time to meet with our clients regularly. For us, it is important to keep you aware of current situations and be able to address and adjust as life and priorities change.
We feel it is important you are comfortable with us and want to understand your needs, for those reasons, our initial meeting is complimentary.
Luis has been advising investors professionally since 2005. In 2016 after 11 years holding senior management positions with Financial Service and Insurance Firms, Luis abandoned the traditional Broker dealer model and founded LULLA Wealth Financial a registered independent advisory firm.
As founder and Principal of LULLA Wealth Financial, LLC. Luis works collaboratively with clients to help them make important life decisions, set financial goals, and plan for the future. By embracing a model of integrated wealth management, he addresses all of the relevant areas of personal finance including investment management, taxes, wealth accumulation, cash flow generation, insurance, and estate planning to generate comprehensive financial plans for his clients. A benefit of working with Luis is his ability to provide a simple, clear, and easy to understand explanation of some very complex services and products offered today.
Luis is an Investment Advisor Representative, and holds his Series 6, 63, 65 Securities registrations, as well as his state 2-15 Life, Health and Annuities Insurance license.
Luis and his wife Gina spend their spare time volunteering at their kids’ schools, running to the “after school activities”, cooking with the kids, and Luis forever working on improving his golf game.
Bradley D. Sellick, Sr.
Bradley has a long background in overseeing service sensitive business operations. His 40+ years enjoying the Treasure Coast of Florida, made his decision to acquire a local, full service Insurance Agency in Stuart 10 years ago, very easy.
His firm, Assured Insurance Services, LLC is an independent, full service agency. It is Bradley’s intent to convert a Transaction into a Relationship, with each client he has the pleasure of working with.
The full service agency moniker is fitting as Bradley holds Florida insurance licenses for both General Lines and Life, Health & Annuities. In addition, Bradley holds a Series 65 and is an Investment Advisor Representative with LULLA Wealth Financial, LLC.
The coupling with LULLA Wealth Financial, LLC was a fitting connection as Bradley and LULLA founder and principal, Mr. Luis Whu, previously worked together at a national financial services and insurance firm. The core principals of both owners and their firms are in sync as relationship building drives all that we do.
Married to wife Elizabeth, they have 4 children and 10 perfect grandchildren. When not enjoying all that Florida has to offer with those grandchildren, Bradley is a Student of the Business (SOB). He immerses himself in personal and professional education, enlightenment and growth in furtherance of the Bachelor of Business Administration degree he earned from Florida Atlantic University.
Live For Long-Term Intentionality
“A challenge for families seeking investment advice is being intentional.
The conversation should be around cash flow and lifestyle
rather than short-term performance and market commentary.”
Who We Serve
Our mission is to take the stress out of planning for your future by explaining the complex financial world in a simple and relatable way. We help you build, preserve and manage your wealth.
For every dollar you earn, our goal is to help you keep as much of that money as you can – to grow it, to protect it, to take it back when you need it, and assure that your money goes where you want it to extend your legacy.
Doug and Carol are professionals working long hours, raising a family, and overseeing their aging parents – therefore, they feel they never have enough time.
They love their family and careers yet worry about burnout and are unclear if they are taking advantage of all the benefits and strategies available to help them protect and grow their nest egg for retirement and their family.
They partner with LULLA because of our team’s talent, training, and commitment to help produce the outcomes that clients tell us are important to them.
There are various reasons why today 31% of adults in the U.S. are single, choosing to delay or not get married, divorced, or loss a spouse are front of the list.
Singleness is no longer to be sneered at. Even if the plan is to marry later or manage your finances separately, it is important to have a firm handle of it on your own.
As a single non-dual income individual, on one hand you may benefit from only having to take care of yourself. On the other, you are essentially the only one responsible for your financial wellness, an emergency event, and planning for your older age.
There are lots of advice for singles regarding relationships, but not much about financial planning. As a single professional, it is important to have an accountability partner and help you get your finances in order.
Things to consider:
- Go the extra mile with your emergency savings
- Get disability insurance
- Start saving for retirement ASAP
- Fall in love with budgeting
- Create multiple streams of income
- Get out of debt
- Surround yourself with the right people

How Do I Get Started
Our initial 20 30-minute chat is all about your needs. Our goal is to answer any immediate questions you might have – including about us. We might ask about your goals and type of planning you are thinking of. If we both feel we are mutually suited, we then schedule a discovery meeting to delve deeper into your current financial situation.
Step 1 : Understand
This is about getting a clear picture of your situation and mindset, so we can determine the best course of action.
We will review your current plan together and discuss your goals in closer detail. We can address any concerns with your current plan and discuss your feelings related to investing, taxes, retirement, and financial advice in general.
Step 2: Evaluate & Analyze
We will evaluate the effectiveness of your current plan, how it is meeting your goals today and how likely is it to continue to meet your long-term goals.
The components of your current plan will be analyzed to ensure they are in line with your priorities and moral preferences.
Step 4: Initiate & Monitor
Welcome to our family! Now we are in it together!
As your life and priorities evolve, we will continue to monitor and adjust your plan and portfolios. Together we will identify the frequency, dates, and agenda for future meetings.
Step 3: Develop & Review
Once we develop a customized financial framework with your priorities and goals in mind, we will compare it with your current plan to address any changes that will benefit your portfolio and explain why we are proposing the changes.
We encourage you to step back, review the results and think about it on your own. Once you decide to move forward, we follow up with forms to fill and open accounts, transfer assets, and implement your updated plan.
