Brian D. Wruk, MBA, CFP (US), CFP (Canada), TEP Transition Financial Advisors Group, Inc.

About Brian: A fiduciary financial advisor since January of 1997, Brian has helped hundreds of families navigate the complexities of their personal finances to achieving their goals. He prides himself in being able to take complex subject matter and convey it in an easy-to-understand way so his clients can make the right decision for their situation. Brian serves the community by undertaking pro bono budget counseling, helping in divorce cases and assisting widows who have lost a spouse. Away from the office, Brian enjoys time with his wife, reality TV, time with his daughters and he recently became a grandfather.

Priorities in Serving Clients: Brian and his team have been providing comprehensive wealth management services to a select group of clients since founding his firm, Transition Financial in 2001. He has navigated many clients away from financial decisions or products that would have significantly delayed the achievement of their personal goals. The conversation doesn’t start with your portfolio size or your tax situation, it starts with a conversation about you, your loved ones and what you are trying to achieve. That drives all of the decision-making across all aspects of one’s personal financial situation. To do this, it may require running retirement projections, tax planning and preparation, estate plan design, managing investment portfolios or helping with risk management issues like disability, job loss and death of a bread winner.

Target Client: Clients of Transition Financial typically have more complex financial situations requiring advanced tax planning, estate planning or more sophisticated investment strategies.
