Local financial management company Mariner Wealth Advisors has received a national accolade by Barron’s, the Dow Jones business and financial weekly.
The firm’s CEO, Martin Bicknell, has been recognized as one of the top 100 financial advisors in America. The award was based on a number of criteria, such as the quality of advisors’ practices, community involvement, and regulatory records.
Fifty of the advisors recognized by Barron’s — a full half of the list — have practices based out of either New York or California. Mariner was the only Kansas-based firm making the cut.
“Two-thousand eight was an exceptionally challenging year for investors and, certainly, the financial services industry," Bicknell said.
He said the Barron’s award was a “testament to the people at the firm and the clients who have entrusted Mariner with their money.”
Mariner Wealth Advisors is a Kansas-based investment and wealth management company. The firm offers diverse, customized financial expertise, including wealth management; estate, tax and benefit planning; insurance; and charitable giving solutions to high net worth individuals, business owners and executives, corporations, and foundations.
