Advice With A Purpose
WHAT WE DO Our job is to guide and inspire you to a brighter, more confident future. Financial security is achieved through saving, planning, investments, and insurance. We help you blend these together in a thoughtfully concise way so that you know where you want to go and you understand how you are going to get there.
WHY WE DO IT When you're confident in your future, you can live more abundantly today. Here at Brighton, it brings purpose to our lives knowing that we are helping you pursue financial peace. How would today be different if you had a little less worry and a little more time to focus on what is most important to you?
WHERE WE'RE GOING We are passionate about advancing financial peace in our community. Through education, inspiration and partnership we aim to help people of all ages rise above our culture's misleading financial messages.
We are SmartVestor Pros.

We are proud that both of our founding partners are listed on the SmartVestor Pro directory. We have earned our position as SmartVestor Pros because of our experience in the industry and our drive to help others. We previously served as Dave Ramsey's Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) for the Fresno area and had the chance to serve hundreds of people just like you. That program has ended but we are excited to be a part of the entirely new SmartVestor program.

SmartVestor is a directory of investment professionals. Neither Dave Ramsey nor SmartVestor are affiliates of Brighton or LPL.

Here at Brighton, we've worked very hard to tailor our service and client experience to a specific kind of client: the modern long-term investor; busy, discerning and grounded. With so many choices for financial advisors, knowing the differences between them can mean everything to getting the right fit. From what type of firm they work with, to fee structures, to service models, to certifications and licenses, to investment philosophies, to types of investments they recommend, all of it matters greatly and we urge you to look deeply into the matter. This may be the most important professional relationship you have.
Our Services
Risk Management & Solutions
Long Term Care
Ask anyone who has gone through this with a loved-one, paying for long-term care costs can ruin an otherwise sound financial plan. We can show you several options to make sure all your work and planning does not go to waste, and help decide when the right age to get insurance might be.
Disability Insurance
Losing income due to a medium or long term disability is much more common than most people think, and the coverage most have through work is not remotely adequate. We can help bridge the gap to ensure your goals stay on track, no matter what life might throw at you.

Most people know that life insurance is important, but knowing how much coverage is right for you, and what kinds of policies are the best fit is where many get stuck. Our expertise and unbiased advise can really help.
