Brandon’s interest in financial services stems from the vast opportunity for research and analysis in the industry. From quantifying portfolio probabilities to measuring the risk inherent in the capital markets, he thrives on studying challenging concepts. Brandon began his career in the financial services industry in 2002 working with defined contribution plans, and later defined benefit plans for a local retirement plan administrator. He kept a devotion to investing by studying, reading, and learning as a primary leisure activity. He joined First Pacific in 2016, strengthening our firm’s Investment Committee. Brandon and his wife embark on adventures traveling around the Pacific Northwest with their daughter, trying new restaurants, and eating gourmet food.
