Who we are
Merriman was founded in 1983 as a fee-only investment advisory firm with a strong focus on excellent service, smart investing and long-term goals. We’ve grown significantly since then, and have also come to realize that investment advice is only a small piece of the puzzle.
Our processTo help our clients be truly successful in achieving their goals, we offer a comprehensive approach to wealth management that includes not only investment planning, but also encompasses taxes, estate planning, insurance, risk management, charitable giving and more.
How we think about investing
Investing is a sort of science. Our investment philosophy and method are grounded on decades of academic research, and rely on objective data rather than emotions and forecasts. Above all, we seek to balance return and risk considerations over longer-term time horizons.
