About Mercer Advisors

We believe that wealth management should be about more than the value of your investing portfolio or the size of your bank balance. It’s about your Economic Freedom – and living life on your own terms, according to your values.

From his early days as an estate planning attorney, Mercer Advisors’ founder Kendrick Mercer recognized that his clients needed services that went well beyond drafting wills and trusts. They needed someone who could also help them make smart, informed financial decisions through a comprehensive, big-picture view. Which is why Kendrick launched Mercer Advisors in 1985 as one of the country’s first planning-focused independent registered investment advisory firms.

“We are unconditionally committed to work with our clients to create the best context possible for their Economic Freedom, so that they do not have to worry about money.”- Kendrick Mercer, 1986

The purpose to help clients on their path to Economic Freedom is alive and well. We dream big; and help you dream bigger. But more important, we have the knowledge, experience and team to help you achieve those dreams.

2020 Financial Times Top Registered Investment Advisors, The Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers is an independent listing produced annually by the Financial Times (July 2020). The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIA firms, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflected each practice’s performance in six primary areas: assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, years in existence, credentials and online accessibility. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of the practice’s future performance. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300. To select the FT 300, we started by reaching out to the largest independent RIAs across the U.S. that have a minimum of $300 million in assets. To make sure the list was relevant to affluent individuals reading the FT, we required that no more than 75% of a practice’s assets be institutional. Qualified RIAs then filled out an online application, and were scored on several factors, including AUM, AUM growth rate and compliance record. Selection is independent and objective, and no money is exchanged as part of the process.
