Brett J Bissell, CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®

Wealth Management Advisor


As a Wealth Management Advisor, I believe one’s experience, education and accreditation does not define one’s professionalism, but rather one’s character and professional standard of practice in supporting clients as a trusted financial expert.  

Brett Bissell brings to his clients over eighteen years of professional experience in the financial industry spanning all levels of business and personal planning analysis.  He became a financial representative so that he could make a more direct impact on the lives of individuals, families, and small business owners as they embark on the sometimes intimidating task of preparing their future.  The long-term associations Brett has with his clients are core components of his business.  Earning and preserving these relationships make Brett’s work fulfilling.
