Bernie is one of Denver’s best known small business advisor as well as a top advisor for individual investors.  He has been nationally recognized for his continued work within the financial planning industry and strives to continually educate himself and his clients on the latest tax and financial planning issues.  Bernie has been listed in the January 2009 issue of Forbes as one of “The Most Dependable Wealth Managers in the Rocky Mountains”, based Goldline Research.  You may also have seen Bernie being interviewed on 9 News or in the September 2009 issue of 5280 Magazine.

Bernie Taillon, CFEd, CPA 
Bernie graduated from Indiana University’s world-renown business school with a degree in finance in 1993 and has been helping people with their investments ever since.  After college, Bernie was a successful stockbroker with a large national firm and in 1996, he managed a small stock brokerage office in his home town of Hammond Indiana.  Bernie moved to Denver in 1999 and has since become one of Denver’s leading experts in advising clients on investments, taxes and comprehensive financial planning.

Bernie is so committed to educating himself and his clients that he has earned the nationally recognized designation of Certified Financial Educator (CFEd).  He teaches financial planning classes and tax classes in the evenings through the local Community College of Aurora.  He also provides his clients with ongoing education through his workshop series – which is an ongoing education and lifestyle series of events provided to his clients free of charge.

Since the daily recommendations and decisions that Bernie makes for his clients are so important, he decided that he should seek another level of professional certification – CPA designation.  In 2003, Bernie took the CPA exam and passed it on the first attempt.  He now brings an additional perspective of advice, and consistently implements tax-planning strategies for his clients.

Bernie is also a brewmaster!  He has been brewing beer as a hobby since 1991 and has won countless awards for his beer.  He is also a certified beer judge and is compensated for judging beer and competitions throughout the state.  It is a common scene to see Bernie’s clients leave the office with complimentary bottles of award winning beer!
