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. Such as: the bridges of child to adult, adult to marriage, marriage to children, children to college and then to retirement. Our business is dedicated to assisting you in planning, implementing and maintaining the financial bridges of life.
In light of uncertain economic conditions and changing needs, it is imperative to seek a relationship that inspires confidence and competence.
