LEAWOOD, Kan., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Martin C. Bicknell and the teams at Mariner Wealth Advisors – an independent wealth advisory firm with offices nationwide – have again received top honors from Barron's, ranking #4 on Barron's 2012 list of the Top 100 Financial Advisors. Barron's - one of the nation's most respected publications covering financial news and market developments - ranked Mariner at #17 last year and for the past four years ranked the firm as the #1 financial advisor in the state of Kansas, where the firm is headquartered.
The ranking reflects the volume of assets overseen by the advisors and their teams, revenues, and the quality of the advisors' practices. The total asset value used in the Barron's ranking includes all assets managed under Bicknell as chief executive officer of Mariner Holdings, a global financial services firm that owns and manages both Mariner Wealth Advisors and Montage Investments, an asset management firm.
"I am once again overwhelmed by the amazing honor of being ranked so highly by Barron's," said Marty Bicknell. "Our associates arrive at the office each and every morning determined to do what's right by our firm's clients. I am convinced it is their unwavering focus that has made us successful to this point. It is that same focus that will allow us to continue helping our clients achieve their dreams well into the future."
