Above and beyond

The characteristics that differentiate our firm

Living by these characteristics is not a short-term program, but is a basic part of our DNA. They enable us to focus collaboratively and effectively on you and your family or institution’s specific goals, now and into the future.

Strength in numbers: Our team model approach

strengthOur clients tell us they want to work with advisory teams that combine multiple areas of expertise on their behalf. Our advisors exhibit intellectual curiosity and entrepreneurial spirit and drive, with a strong commitment of care, for our clients. These qualities enable us to get to know our clients personally to build lasting and mutually beneficial relationships.

  • We maintain momentum and develop new and innovative solutions for the discerning and sophisticated clients we serve.
  • Our holistic culture of research and discovery, sustained financial performance and stability, and commitment to best practices reflects the optimum model for both your growth and ours.
  • By employing a team model to help you reach your financial goals, we incorporate the distinct talents of multiple professionals to construct and manage all of the available investment and wealth management solutions to generate better ideas and reach balanced decisions to meet your objectives.
  • We seek professionals who resonate with our culture and participate in developing the strategic direction and ultimately, ownership of the firm.

We pride ourselves on the longevity of our client service team members, many of whom have been serving clients in this way for decades.

We are an independent, partner-owned firm

independent1Because of MRA Associates’ partner-owned structure, we do not have to satisfy the goals or aspirations of any parent company. Our independence means:

  • We have the freedom to make decisions that are always exclusively in your best interests.
  • You partner with a team that is continually invigorated by the flexibility and innovation that independence affords.
  • You speak directly with decision makers. Partners share ownership of the firm, and we are committed to continually broaden the ownership through internal staff development.
  • Our recommendations are strategy-based, ensuring that our decisions align with your interests. This helps us meet your specific goals by choosing from a wide range of investment and wealth management options.
  • Receiving feedback from our clients, employees and network of professional relationships influences our thinking and actions. Client satisfaction surveys help us improve our service across the entire firm.

We recognize that each of our clients has different goals and objectives, and as an independent firm we are uniquely able to custom tailor every portfolio we manage to provide precisely the right solution for every client’s unique needs.

Embracing sustainability and stewardship
