Hi – My name is Ben Barrett, and I am a community member, husband and financial advisor. I am passionate about my family, my community and athletics (football, hiking and running). Currently, I serve on the board for the Cold Spring Chamber of Commerce and as a regional coordinator for the Walk to End Alzheimer's. I also volunteer through the St. Cloud Rotaract Club and the INDY foundation.

My wife, Kate, and I were married in June of 2018. We currently have two wonderful dogs, Kennedy and Bentley.

I have a passion for finding solutions, so in our branch, we work with people who need help with organizing, building, protecting and transferring wealth. We work closely with your professional team (attorney, CPA and other professionals) to make sure everyone is working together to help you achieve your financial and life goals.

I value relationships first, so regarding serving clients, I live by my value statement: There is nothing more important to me than understanding what's important to you! Only then can you and I work through our established process to help you build personalized strategies and the specific actions needed to help achieve your goals. If you have any questions, feel free to give the office a call or send an email.
