Meet The Team
The team behind Pearce Financial is made up of qualified financial professionals who are passionate about helping individuals and families achieve their ideal retirements.
Brian S. Pearce Owner & CEO
With more than 30 years’ experience in benefits, finance and financial services, Brian Pearce helps clients plan for successful retirements.
“I help people build retirement income by creating custom strategies that address their needs,” Brian said. “I monitor each strategy through the years to ensure my clients stay on track toward their long-term goals.”
Brian urges people to work with a financial advisor for two reasons: to avoid mistakes that can cost them money and to receive guidance about the latest investment strategies.
“I’ve experienced some of the best times in the market — and some of the worst,” Brian said. “Having been through the ups and downs helps me educate others on how to deal with risk and volatility.”
Brian passed the FINRA Series 7, FINRA Series 24, General Securities Principal, and FINRA Series 65 exams and earned the General Securities Representative and Investment Adviser Representative designations. He also holds licenses in life and health insurance and variable annuities. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida.
Brian has deep roots in Polk County and has lived in Florida his whole life. Brian has been married to Lisa for over 30 years. They have three grown children, Lance, Jordann and Madison, and one grandson, Landon. Brian’s hobbies include golf and weight training.
