When can you enjoy everything you’ve worked for?

Welcome to a different kind of wealth management in West Des Moines

We get you to think about money like you’ve never thought about it before

Has rolling up your sleeves, working hard, and building success always been part of your DNA? Then we believe Mercer Advisors is the wealth management firm for you.

Because we’re here to help you keep building on that success. But at the same time, we fundamentally believe there’s a point in life where the wealth-builder in you deserves to become the wealth-enjoyer of all you’ve attained.

We’re built differently

Because to us, helping you protect and grow your wealth is about much more than just your investment portfolio

Of course, a well-managed investment portfolio is the cornerstone to building wealth. And we strive to do that exceptionally well.
 
But if returns are your sole focus, those returns can quickly be offset by what happens in the other parts of your financial life. Like not preparing for major taxable events, having an incomplete estate plan, a retirement plan that’s on autopilot, or a less than ideal business succession strategy.
 
So, unlike most firms, we have expertise across financial planning, investing strategy, tax and estate planning, trust services, insurance coverage, and more. With specialists across each of these areas communicating with each other about you, and with you.

Put simply, we help oversee and connect all the dots of your financial life.

Beginning his career as an actuary, Randy held senior management positions with Allstate Life and ING/Voya Financial and was Chief Financial Officer for Lincoln Benefit Life Insurance Company.

After 23 years of helping companies manage risk and profitability at the enterprise level, he left the corporate world to work one-on-one with executives to help them manage their personal financial situations. Randy enjoys researching issues to bring creative solutions to complicated cases. He earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and actuarial science from the University of Iowa.
