Mariner Holdings


Mariner Holdings was founded in 2006, and has since grown from $300 million in assets under management and eight employees to $35 billion and nearly 450 employees. Based in Leawood, Kan., Mariner focuses on providing wealth and asset management services through its two subsidiaries: Mariner Wealth Advisors and Montage Investments. In August 2014, Mariner Holdings acquired a majority interest in Mariner Capital Advisors. Allied will continue to provide investment banking, valuation advisory, and forensic accounting services to clients who are independent of Mariner, as well as to Mariner's existing and future clients. The relationship will also give Allied access to Mariner's industry-leading resources, technology, and personnel, which it will leverage to provide its clients with greater attention and advice as they transition out of their businesses or pursue growth opportunities.

Mariner has been named a Best Place to Work by the Kansas City Business Journal and a Best Company to Work For by Ingram's magazine. Mariner CEO Marty Bicknell was ranked #2 on Barron's 2013 list of the Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors in the U.S., and the #1 financial advisor in the state of Kansas. He has now been ranked in the top ten nationally for a fourth consecutive year, and first in Kansas for the past five years.*
