About Me

Amanda Wray, Behavioral Financial Advisor, leads the Scottsdale, Arizona office for Brightscape Investment Centers. Amanda brings warmth and creativity to the financial planning process for her clients. She helps clients uncover their core values and attitudes towards money to help them make better financial decisions.

After spending a decade in corporate level marketing for Verizon and The Dallas Morning News, Amanda ventured out on her own to help individuals and small business owners navigate the ever-changing world of insurance and risk planning. She never looked back and her passion for planning quickly evolved to financial planning for those in or approaching retirement.

Amanda has a passion for working with clients who have reached a crossroads in their lives and need objective advice and an empathetic ear. She seeks to unlock the opportunities within your money path that speak to who you are, where you are at, where you want to - and realistically can - be.

While the focus of the practice is financial planning, the angle of attack is more holistic in approach. Amanda will take the time to understand your situation both on and off the spreadsheet. Complicated financial jargon does not live here (unless you want it to). A custom financial plan is the intended destination as no two journeys are exactly alike.

A graduate of the University of Texas with a BBA in Management and an emphasis in Entrepreneurial studies, Amanda prides herself as a 5th generation Native Texan although she now calls Arizona home.

When she’s not serving her clients or studying for her upcoming CFP Exam, Amanda enjoys playing golf, traveling, volunteering in her community of Fountain Hills, and spending time with friends and family. Amanda and her husband, Daniel, have two young daughters, Rylee and Ramsay, who consistently remind them of their superior intelligence.

About our Firm

Integrity, Transparency, Objectivity

In the late 1990s, large financial firms, more often than not, were not putting the clients’ interests first. Eric Weiss, Brightscape’s founder, worked at one such institution. He felt a firm should provide unbiased and objective advice. Selling proprietary or preselected lists of paid-for products wasn’t fair to the client. Weiss believed a firm should provide unbiased and objective advice based on the individual client’s best interest. He wanted to combine his experience and ethical standards to create something new; thus, Brightscape was born.

Brightscape started out and still is at the forefront of what it means to be a fiduciary. The name itself exemplifies a bright future. Every member of the Brightscape team focuses on putting the clients’ interests first.
