Providing comprehensive wealth advice has become more complex over the years. For those who do not have a team approach, the advisors are required to be experts in every facet of wealth management. When you’re a part of Mariner Wealth Advisors, we surround you with the resources to help make you successful in navigating your client to their goals.

  • National Firm, ranked in the top four 2016-2019 RIA firms by Barron’s.
  • Culture is Key – For 14 years, our culture has centered around putting the client first. We feel strongly about it; we’ve built it into our mission statement: Client First, Associate Second, Shareholder last.
  • Bifurcation of Duties – We separate giving advice from business development, investment management and back office…Your only job is providing advice and retaining clients. 
  • Advisory solutions – We make it easy for you to advise your clients on all aspects of their financial life by having trust services, tax planning and preparation, investment banking and valuation group, retirement plan solutions and insurance solutions. 

When you join Mariner Wealth Advisors, you no longer need to be a jack of all trades. We cover the back-end of doing business for you and you will no longer be responsible for bringing in new business. In the words of senior wealth advisor Suzanne Wheeler, separating business development and the running of the firm from working with the clients is a tremendous asset.
