Brad Barclay and Garret Ward have worked together since 2005, taking Comprehensive Financial Group to new heights as one of Utah’s most complete and thorough financial planning firms, both for short-term and long-term financial planning.
Brad Barclay is a professional, full-service retirement advisor with 18 years of experience. Brad believes in making sure his clients have the maximum amount of tax savings and interest earnings working for them, and a minimum amount of taxes and interest working against them. Using this kind of strategy can translate into a far better retirement situation than just “selling annuities.”
Brad is constantly searching for the best accounts, the most qualified money managers, the most efficient strategies, and the best tools available to help his clients achieve the most successful possible outcomes for their individual situations. Brad loves his career and his clients, and this is evidenced by the amount of time and effort he spends on each individual case.
Garret brings 11 years of experience to Comprehensive Financial Group. His relationships with clients grow stronger and stronger every year, helping give them direction and peace of mind with their finances. He never plans to retire from this profession, because it’s not work to him – he is creating lasting friendships and making a difference in people’s lives.
Garret has been married to his beautiful wife for 13 years; they have 3 boys, ages 11, 8 and 5. One of his favorite things in this world is spending time with his family, and he enjoys the outdoors, hunting, golfing and running.
