Bradley G. Barnett, CFP®
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner, Investment Advisor Representative
Simply stated, I am a devoted, analytical counselor and money manager. Since 1977, I seek to provide independent advice for my clients. My specialties include "hands on" asset management utilizing a fee-based approach, where I have an aligned interest with the client in the growth of their portfolio. I employ an active, contrarian, tactical style using both fundamental and technical analysis. There is no substitute for my decades of experience in this regard.
I am also a firm believer in other specialties: providing retirement strategies available within a dynamic, insurance-based platform.
I am committed to understanding my client's needs and providing financial strategies tailored individually for each client to help them at every stage of life.
