Located in Bradenton, Florida we have provided clients, not only in Manatee County, but around the state of Florida and the US, guidance in personal and professional financial services since 1997.

For over a decade, as sole proprietor, John R. Russo continually worked with a model for providing expanded financial services to all clients. The concept of Bridge Financial Solutions was conceived of the notion that in life we build and cross many bridges.
