Meet Brian Berkenhoff, CFA
"I founded Birch Investment Management with one goal in mind: to empower families to align their finances with their values to help them achieve financial independence."
Hi there! I'm Brian. I'm originally from Seattle, Washington, but my home base is now in Brookings, South Dakota. I have three awesome kids who keep me busy. I'm a travel enthusiast, movie buff, and an avid golfer.
My passion is helping clients make the best financial planning decisions for their unique life goals. I founded Birch Investments as an independent firm structured to work in the best interest of our clients. We intentionally limit our client base so we can get to know our clients and their families on a deeper level.
