Vincent R. Barbera, CFP ®, MSFSManaging Partner
Vincent Barbera is dedicated to helping families achieve a comfortable life. As a husband and father, he knows firsthand the financial pressures that parents face in choosing the right schools for their children, providing meaningful memories like summer camp and sports, and saving for their future college tuition—all the while making sure to put enough aside for their own retirement. As a financial advisor, Vincent thrives in helping families understand their options and make informed decisions to realize their dreams.
Before co-founding Newbridge Wealth Management, Vincent started his career at The Vanguard Group. Not only did he gain invaluable experience at the company, but he came to two realizations that shaped his future: First, investing must be low-cost for families to have the best opportunity for success. And second, investing should be just one part in a comprehensive financial plan that helps families meet their goals. After gaining additional experience at an independent advisory firm, he was fortunate enough to meet someone who shared his vision, and Newbridge Wealth Management was formed. Today, Vincent is thrilled to co-lead a firm emphasizing comprehensive financial planning, a fiduciary obligation to put clients’ best interests first, and technology tools that complement the firm’s holistic advice.Vincent makes his home in Valley Forge with his wife and three sons.
He loves to take his boys hiking, exploring places they have never seen before. Other favorite activities include enjoying coffee, watching science fiction movies on rainy days, enjoying more coffee, and spending time at the beach.
R. Christopher Wiegand, CFAManaging Partner
Christopher Wiegand has had a lifelong fascination for how investing can help people achieve their dreams. His father instilled the appreciation early in his childhood, and after reading Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor in college, Chris knew he was hooked. However, he also knew that he did not want to work with just numbers; he wanted to work one-on-one with people. He realized that the advisory path would give him the best opportunity to draw on his expertise in investment management while helping people succeed. Today, as a financial advisor at Newbridge Wealth Management, Chris partners with clients, helping them to leverage their finances and particularly their investments to make their dreams possible. As a managing partner, Chris also shares responsibilities for operations and ensures that the firm is in compliance with federal and state regulatory laws. He thrives on the daily challenge of managing multiple responsibilities while striving to always get them right. And he finds gratification in the impactful, long-term relationships he has forged with clients.
Outside of the office, Chris is dedicated to spending time with his wife, Christine, and two children, Mason and Emerson. The family periodically volunteers with Bringing Hope Home, and Chris also serves as a volunteer co-trustee with the Narberth Police Pension Fund and as a committee member for the Waldron Mercy Academy annual golf outing. A casual ornithologist, he can identify many songbirds by their call.
