Fee-Only & Fiduciary

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country's leading association of fee-only and fiduciary financial planners.

Brett Walters is a Nashville-based fee-only fiduciary financial planner serving clients across the country. Trident Financial Planning, LLC specializes in providing objective financial planning to help clients build, manage, grow, and protect their assets through life's transitions. Brett Walters is a NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisor and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.


In choosing to work with Brett as your trusted advisor, you gain access to a financial planner with a strong and unique academic and professional background. His advisory career began after completing college at the University of Colorado - Denver where he earned a degree, with honors, in finance. Later, he earned the Certified Financial Planner™ certification to continue to develop professionally. Brett's professional experience includes serving in the role of financial advisor within a large national firm as well as at an independent, boutique planning firm. Today,  he has the pleasure to serve you as an independent advisor and founder of Trident Financial Planning, LLC.


Brett's path through life has been nontraditional and service oriented. After graduating high school, he set out for a challenge and ultimately joined the U.S. military ranks in the Navy SEAL teams. In the presence of heroes, Brett served five years, including two overseas deployments. This unparalleled experience taught him innumerable lessons. Chief among them include discipline, attention to detail, diligence, and perseverance. These are but a few qualities he shares with his clients.


Often, Brett feels like the wealthiest man in the world, but he doesn't measure this feeling by luxury or extravagance. Instead, Brett measures his abundance by something more valuable. He has a beautiful, happy family with whom spending time is his favorite activity. Together, they live in a comfortable house in the fantastic Rocky Mountain foothills. Brett's passion is improving the lives of others. He is thankful to have the pleasure of being able to do so through such a rewarding career, with just enough spare time to combine his favorite activity with snowboarding, biking, fly-fishing, and everything else Colorado has to offer.
