Bruce Thompson

Managing Director – Senior Wealth Advisor

Bruce Thompson


Bruce’s favorite quote borrows from Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

Bruce grew up in Buffalo, NY and is a lifelong Bill’s fan, which has taught valuable lessons in humility!

Our mission is to help clients achieve financial independence, the ability to live life on your terms. Our comprehensive fiduciary relationships help clients to go forward with freedom from worry, while also saving invaluable time so they indeed can focus on life’s important pursuits.

Planning and investing can be complicated, but our mission is to make it less so by helping clients adopt an intelligent framework for making financial decisions and a cohesive strategy for staying on track toward their goals. Education and consistent communication is essential to the success of an investment plan and an advisory relationship.

Bruce brings over 40 years of investment wisdom, planning experience and client success. In 1991, he founded Thompson Wealth Management in Concord, Massachusetts, earning a reputation as a pioneer of the fee-only advice revolution, a family coach, and a tireless steward for generations of clients. His team joined with Lexington Wealth in December 2021, “for its strong culture and team, focus on holistic planning, and because the firm is built on client trust and the belief that clients’ success is what truly matters.”

Bruce served as Vice President at Smith Barney and Dean Witter, and as Account Executive at EF Hutton and IDS American Express. He graduated from Nichols School and Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, including a one-year exchange program at London School of Economics. Professional education includes the certificate program in quantitative portfolio management at Harvard University, and the American Banking Institute certificate in money and banking.

Bruce lives in Concord center with his wife, Marianne. He considers convincing her to marry him and raising their two children, Dylan, and Sarah, as his greatest achievements! He serves on the boards at Nashawtuc Country Club and uAspire, a non-profit providing college bound students of need with financial aid counseling. He oversees the Thompson Family “B the Match” Charitable fund, which seeks to spark entrepreneurialism among non-profits. Bruce’s philosophy of seeking balance in life, as with investing, has led to a lifelong affinity for the arts and playing too many sports to mention, none of them particularly well!
