Larry Bridwell, CLTC
Owner, Partner & Financial Advisor
Since 1996, I have been helping clients identify and work toward their financial goals. It brings me immense joy to witness the expression on a client's face when a goal is met because everybody has a unique story, and no one's idea of retirement is exactly the same as another's.
Growing up, I saw my family struggle with their finances. This personal experience motivated me to not only improve my own financial position but also to assist as many other families as possible. I wanted to make sure that I was not only in a better position myself but could also help others in similar situations.
My 8th-grade teacher introduced me to finance when they taught a chapter on money and investing. His remarkable ability to make such a broad and complicated subject matter easy to understand absolutely hooked me. This teacher's influence sparked my passion for the financial industry and showed me how to pursue a career in this field.
I graduated from Madison University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing, and after spending a total of 17 years with Lincoln Financial Group, I joined LPL Financial and Cornerstone Wealth Management, doing business as Steamboat Financial Group, in 2018. Currently, I hold my CLTC™ designation along with my Series 6, 7, and 63 registrations with LPL Financial, and Series 65 registration with Cornerstone Wealth Management. Additionally, I have obtained my Life and Health Insurance licensing in multiple states.
Over the past 20 years, I have been happily married to my wife Kelly, and together, we enjoy spending time with our three children Jake, Ryan, and Melanie. We actively participate in our Church and Community, and you can often find the five of us camping or canoeing on one of the many rivers in Missouri.
