Lanier Financial Group was founded in August of 2009.

The vision behind the development of Lanier Financial Group is that all people deserve to be served on a fiduciary level and work with an advisory team that is transparent, objective, and unbiased.

Although we offer many services to our clients, below are our areas of emphasis:

  • Investment (Portfolio) Management
  • Personal Financial Planning
  • Divorce Planning
  • Business Planning and Valuation

How We Serve Our Clients

At Lanier Financial Group we take pride in providing a high level of service to each and every client we work with.

Due to the fact that our clientele spans from coast to coast we take advantage of technology in order to ensure each client receives the attention they deserve.  While we strive to provide face to face interaction it is not always feasible due to time constraints or physical distance. With that said we provide the security of cloud based document storage and sharing combined with video/web based conferencing tools to keep in regular contact with each person or entity we serve.

We firmly believe the more time we have to work on planning and portfolio management versus commuting provides better service and results for those we serve.
