LPL Financial Planner Branden Mann’s military and combat experiences molded him into a data-driven, detail-oriented individual. Similarly, Branden implements a multi-step process when serving his clients. He first identifies each client’s individual circumstances, listening to their needs, wants and goals. Based on this information, Branden crafts a proposed portfolio of products and services. Together, Branden and the client review the proposal and discuss what it will take to work towards being successful. With all parties committed, the plan is implemented. From that point forward, Branden monitors his clients’ progress, addressing issues and celebrating wins.

Based on the defined goals, Branden will advise the client in a relevant capacity, strive to keep the client focused and act as a reminder of the importance of maintaining a disciplined approach to investing.

Citizens Financial Services (CFS) is an affiliate of the Citizens National Bank of Hillsboro, Texas. CFS was established in 2005.
