Direction through life's transitions

About Brian O. Butler

Before becoming a wealth management advisor, I was the kid in high school with subscriptions to Fortune and Money magazine. The stock market always intrigued me, but growing up I didn't know anyone that invested. I was fortunate to go to a school that had a business magnet program that allowed me to intern at one of the largest independent broker dealers in the country. This exposure at such an early age proved to be very formative. I went away to college and when I got back, was able to land a position in banking which later led to my journey as president of my own firm. Over the last 2 decades since that adventure began, I have had the challenge and pleasure of helping clients with their financial lives. The goal of our firm is to provide "Direction through life's transitions."

Wealth Standard Financial puts its clients interests ahead of its own. Our goal is to help people gain clarity, become intentional, and get organized.

My focus is working to be a guide for people as they navigate the financial complexities life throws at them.
