Brian Waddell has 10 years of experience providing wealth management and financial planning services for business owners, contractors and executive professionals. His focus is on creating solutions in the areas of personal financial planning, wealth management services, retirement income strategies and tax planning strategies.
Brian began his career as an associate in 2011 at a boutique wealth management firm focused on one product and quickly realized the need for change in the industry. He joined New England Financial Group in 2012 to begin building his own team with the vision to restore trust in financial services by employing a comprehensive approach to planning and leading clients with a strategic vision for themselves. Since then, Brian has developed a systematic team-based financial planning model, working closely with clients, accountants, attorneys and insurance agents, to implement coordinated solutions and an exceptional client experience.
“At the end of the day, people who have taken risks and worked hard want to know everything is being done to protect and grow what they've built - everything our team-based model does is predicated on this - to give clients the confidence that a team of advisors is coordinating on their behalf to create the best financial outcomes.” - Brian Waddell
Brian holds degrees in business management and finance from CCSU, holds the Retirement Income Certified Professional designation from the American College and holds an Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) designation. Additionally, he is an active member of the MetroHarford Alliance, Connecticut Association of Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors and resides on the committee for Sticks for Bricks, a local Habitat for Humanity charity golf tournament.
Brian lives in West Hartford, Connecticut with his daughter, Aleksandra, is highly passionate about personal development, and loves playing guitar, golfing, kayaking and photography.
