Brian Lockier

First Vice President–Wealth Management

Financial Advisor

As a 28- year veteran of the financial services industry, I am committed to helping my clients simplify their financial lives by offering comprehensive wealth management, specializing in retirement income planning, fixed income strategies, and estate planning. I employ a disciplined approach to asset allocation, with an emphasis on capital preservation and personalized investment strategies tailored to each individual client. With a commitment to thorough analysis, and a prudent approach to investing, I collaborate closely with clients and their other trusted advisors to help generate and manage income in retirement, and help reduce the tax impact on my clients' estates.

I enjoy skiing, cycling, hiking, and reading anything related to the economy and the stock market, and traveling worldwide with my wife Sheila, and my two sons, Conor, and Sean.
