Meet Our Team

After decades with broker/dealers we took the next step in independence and launched Capstone Pacific Investment Strategies, Inc., a privately owned and independent registered investment advisor.


This was a major milestone for us that not only represents our continued growth and development as a firm, but also our commitment to our clients to deliver what we believe are the best possible financial solutions in these very turbulent economic times.

Capstone Pacific was established for you, our client.

Bryce B. Pease, CFP®

President, CEO, CCO

After more than 35 years of working for big companies, and then smaller broker/dealers, Bryce became convinced that the best way to serve clients was with a private and locally owned company -- so in 2011 he founded Capstone Pacific.

For Bryce, the biggest honor is that he continues to work with clients from his first few years in the business.

Bryce's articles and interviews have been featured in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Pasadena Star News and the Whittier Daily News.  In his free time he enjoys travelling, playing racquetball and spending time with his wife of 44 years, his two daughters and his grandchildren.
