November 2017 | Mariner Capital Advisors       Print

Allied Business Group, an Overland Park-based investment banking firm and a subsidiary of Mariner, today announced it has been renamed Mariner Capital Advisors to better reflect its relationship with its parent company.

Mariner Capital Advisors will continue to provide investment banking, valuation and forensic advisory, and business advisory services to clients across a broad range of industries. It will also continue leveraging Mariner's national resources, technology and personnel to provide solutions to the unique challenges faced by business owners.

According to David Holzman, CFA®, president of Mariner Capital Advisors, "Mariner has a great brand that is continuing to grow. Because we work with many of Mariner's advisors and clients, it makes sense to align our brand with that of the larger firm. Nothing about the services we provide or the clients we serve will change as a result of our rebrand."

"We are combining the M&A and valuation expertise of David's team with the industry experience of Mariner," said Martin C. Bicknell, Mariner chief executive officer. "Mariner's relationships with business owners means that we regularly encounter clients who require assistance with a wide range of business-related challenges. Through Mariner Capital Advisors, we look forward to continuing to meet the needs of business owners."
