Broker Check

A Wealth Management Firm Dedicated to Individualized Tax Planning, Finanical Planning and Invesment Management 

Three Bridges Planning was founded for the sole purpose of being able to offer a true  wealth management experience.  The founders knew that to provide best in class advice, modern planning software and transparent pricing, they would have to leave the constraints of the wire house and the mentality of the bank and form an independent firm.  Partnering with broker dealer Kestra Financial and asset custodian Fidelity, Three Bridges Planning opened its doors on May 1st, 2019.  

Although seemingly a young firm, Three Bridges Planning traces it's roots back to 1972 when Gene McCarthy began his career at A.G. Edwards.  A decade later, in 1983, Dennis Laughlin began with Shearson American Express.  Brendan McCarthy and Brian Laughlin each joined their fathers' practice in the 1990s.  Then in 2002, Gene, Dennis, Brendan and Brian would begin working together at Leg Mason.  A partnership was formed, and although Gene would soon retire, Dennis, Brendan and Brian have been together ever since.  Ultimately, being founders of Three Bridges Planning.  In 2023 Zack Butler joined the firm and works out of the Bradenton, Florida office.  


The team also includes Judy McCarthy and Samantha Verzi.
