Branden Vernon, AIF®
Branden is the owner of Steward Financial Services and here, he helps clients plan for their financial future and addresses their many needs. He is proud to be a “Utah Man” graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Finance. He has worked in the financial services industry for over 20 years. After learning more about what it means to be a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), Branden knew that he wanted to start his own firm to more intimately serve his clients. This also motivated him to pursue his Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designation. His mission is to help others overcome their hardships and be able to achieve a positive future, whether that means retiring on their terms, leaving a lasting legacy, or providing their employees with a competitive benefit plan.
In addition to his daily work, Branden also recognizes the need to remain relevant for his clients and to be on top of changes in the financial and investment industries. As such, he participates in the Ed Slott Advisor Group and is a Master Elite Advisor. He is also an advisor for the Certified Buck List Plan. He is a holistic advisor that looks at his clients’ entire financial picture and this continuing education helps him do that.
When not working, Branden enjoys helping others. He coaches football and teaches not only the fundamentals of the game, but larger life lessons through sports. He has given many hours serving the adults, as well as the youth, in his church. He and his wife enjoy spending time with their 3 children. You’ll most often find them at the football field, at baseball diamonds, or occasionally relaxing on the boat at the lake. He loves Utah and everything that the beautiful area has to offer.
