Bryan is a cultivator of opportunity and that is reflected in his passion for serving the clients of Sweet Financial Partners. Beginning his financial services career in 1979, Bryan has done more than create lasting wealth plans for the wonderful clients we’ve been so fortunate to work with. He has worked to create a movement in this industry to help people realize just how much they are capable of, and just how much they can put their money to work for them.

A Fairmont native, Bryan earned his master’s degree in financial services from The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, before embarking on what would be a lifelong career as a wealth management consultant. He established Sweet Financial Services in 1987 because he knew he wanted to create something lasting and impactful for the future. He saw an opportunity to help people not only accumulate wealth, but to maximize the opportunities and simplify the complexities that come with the distribution phase of life.

Being named to the Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisor list1, Inc Magazines Top 5000 list for fastest growing Private Companies2, and the Financial Times Top 4003 , the drive towards excellence is not foreign to Bryan.

Bryan’s hunger for continued education and growth is something that will never be fully satisfied. Which means that he has created a culture at Sweet Financial that is centered on continued personal and professional growth. This is also reflected in his work with clients as you will often catch Bryan sharing the capability and potential that he sees in others.

As a leader in our industry and a true giver by nature, Bryan, alongside his President Brittany Anderson, coaches other financial advisors from across the country on how to grow an ethical, sustainable practice all while building a company culture and a team that he feels is second to none. Bryan has also authored three books with another to release in early 2021. Get the details on Dare to Dream: Design the Retirement You Can’t Wait to Wake Up to HERE.

Setting aside all of Bryan’s accomplishments and wonderful contributions to our community and beyond, his biggest passion in life is to help his clients and team design a life that they can’t wait to wake up to, which is why he created Sweet Financial’s proprietary process, The Dream Architect™. His passion for helping people realize their biggest dreams in this life is reflected in his generosity, his push for greatness and his commitment to excellence.

To show his commitment to helping people realize what is possible Bryan has created two different foundations. The first is The Marilyn Borchardt-Sweet Foundation, which provides scholarships to the children of hard-working single moms, which he holds close to his heart after growing up with a single mom himself. The second is named after his aunt and uncle that he admired so much, The Roy & Jean Yeager Foundation. This provides monetary donations to various initiatives in the Blue Earth community, which Roy and Jean loved so much.

While Bryan currently works with a select few number of clients directly, his biggest contribution here at Sweet Financial Partners is in his work as the visionary for the practice. He is always looking for new and improved ways to enhance our client experience and take the business to the next level of excellence. While wealth management is what we do, Bryan has paved the way for our team at Sweet Financial to inspire our clients to realize their dreams are possible. As that is truly who we are.

1 The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors 2020, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data. Those advisors who are considered have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, AUM, compliance records, industry experience and those who encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of approximately 32,000 advisors nominated by their firms, 4,000 received the award.

2 The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million.

3 The Financial Times 400 Top Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced annually by Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., on behalf of the Financial Times (April 2020). To qualify for the list, advisers had to have 10 years of experience and at least $300 million in assets under management (AUM) and no more than 60% of the AUM with institutional clients. The FT reaches out to some of the largest brokerages in the U.S. and asks them to provide a list of advisors who meet the minimum criteria outlined above. These advisors are then invited to apply for the ranking. Only advisors who submit an online application can be considered for the ranking. In 2020, roughly 1,040 applications were received and 400 were selected to the final list (38.5%). The 400 qualified advisers were then scored on six attributes: AUM, AUM growth rate, compliance record, years of experience, industry certifications, and online accessibility. AUM is the top factor, accounting for roughly 60-70 percent of the applicant’s score. Additionally, to provide a diversity of advisors, the FT placed a cap on the number of advisors from any one state that’s roughly correlated to the distribution of millionaires across the U.S.
