Josh Brein, Founder and President

Joshua specializes his planning in several niches providing Fee-based Wealth Protection and Management, Extended Care Planning and Income and Estate Planning to seniors aged 55 and older, those soon to retire as well as Veterans and their families

Joshua went to elementary, middle school and high school on Bainbridge Island and attended college in Seattle. At the age of 22, Joshua moved to Orlando, FL where he shortly thereafter began working in Financial Services as a registered representative and investment advisor representative with a large international insurance company.

Upon seeing the need for a higher standard of care and attention to detail by the people he was meeting (many of whom had lost money in the volatile economy post 2007), Joshua opened an independent Registered Investment Advisory firm with a former business partner in Orlando, FL in late 2010.

Joshua relocated his business to Seattle in February of 2013 to be closer to his family who lives in the Seattle area. His focus remains to provide a higher level of planning, service and trust to his clients who have been let down or lead astray by the traditional financial services industry.

Joshua has a passion for educating people on ways to protect their assets, plan for their futures, secure needed and available benefits to help pay for care and secure a legacy for their family and loved ones. As a Financial Advisor with Brein Wealth Management, Joshua’s focus is to find creative solutions to service his clients’ needs and with the understanding that no two individuals’ financial situations are identical, tailoring a plan for each of his clients with precise care and attention to detail.

Social Security Maximization

Your Social Security retirement benefit represents a lifetime’s worth of savings, time, and work, and is most likely your oldest and largest retirement account.
