Brendan is a financial planner providing business owners, self-employed individuals, and life coaches a maestro for their financial symphony.

Do you wish there was one person in your life who understood you and the financial world on a deep level?  Someone who could make sure all the pieces of your financial life resonate with your vision and purpose?

He exists, and his name is Brendan Pheasant.

Brendan’s practice is both personal and business plan driven. Brendan works with his clients on the personal side on goal setting, debt management, saving, investing, tax strategies*, college funding, and insurance and asset protection strategies as well as understanding the impact of shareholder or partnership agreements or their entity selection* on their financial plan.

Brendan also works with businesses to attract and retain team members, plan out employee benefits, design and implement their retirement plans, and plan for a tax-efficient exit and transition.

He has an expansive internal team and external network to make sure his clients have access to the expertise and services they need to succeed.

Outside of work Brendan can be found spending time with his wife Valerie, a Montessori guide, building Telsa factories in his backyard with his four-year-old son, or looking for rolly pollies with his two-year-old daughter.
