Overland Park, Kansas-based Mariner currently has 403 advisers across 54 offices. Since July, the firm has announced six acquisitions and added more than $7 billion in assets under advisement.
“It’s been a busy and exciting summer of growth for our team,” Marty Bicknell, president and chief executive of Mariner Wealth Advisors, said in a prepared statement.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the great associates at FCG Advisors to our already talented team,” Bicknell said. “Having an expanded presence in New Jersey will allow us to serve our existing clients better and give us the opportunity to provide wealth advisory services to more people across the region.”
FCG, which was founded in 1994 by John Combias, has assumed the Mariner Wealth Advisors name. The Chatham office remains under Combias’ leadership.
“An internal culture focused on collaboration, not competition, is what attracted us to join Mariner Wealth Advisors,” Combias said. “And for our valued, longtime clients, many of whom are multi-generational, their offerings from wealth planning to insurance solutions allow us to expand upon the services we provide.”
