Brandon Gerfen Fiduciary Advisor

Brandon Gerfen

FIDUCIARY ADVISOR

Texas

In Brandon’s early life, he grew up in a family struggling to make ends meet. The emotions this stirred in Brandon at a young age prompted him to ensure that his family never had to do without, which emboldened him to join the Marine Corps to find a new way of life.


It was in the Marine Corps that Brandon learned the character attributes of judgment, decisiveness, initiative, and most importantly, unselfishness. It was also there that he met his wife Silvia and began their family. The two now have four children: Jacob, Roman, Lucia, and Leyla.

When it was time for Brandon’s military career to come to an end, he still wanted nothing more than to continue to serve people. Brandon realized he could do this by helping others make their dreams come true by helping make sense of all of their financial options and take control of their life.

Brandon feels extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to positively impact the lives of those he comes in contact with every day for the past seven years. He strives to partner with the people he serves by learning what is truly important to them, empowering them to make keen decisions about their money, and creating and constructing a financial plan together that will help them achieve their goals and dreams. Those goals and dreams could be anything from planning for retirement, living in retirement, saving for their children’s education, or preparing for the unexpected.
