RIA Mercer Global Advisers has acquired MDK Private Wealth Management.

MDK is a Seattle-based wealth management firm serving UHNW clients with assets under supervision of over $2.5bn.

Furthermore, MDK offers a full range of family office services including financial planning, investment management, private banking and lending.

In addition, the MDK deal with Mercer allows the firm to lead with its goal-based approach and act as the “financial quarterback” to give clients a full financial picture.

Commenting on the transaction, co-founder Chris Kalafatis stated: “Together with my Co-Founders Jaimi Dennehy and Paul Meyer, we have built a white glove multi-family office designed to serve our UHNW clients with exceptional umbrella care. While we have done that, we also wanted to build out our scale creating a platform for institutional and ongoing care.” Co-Founder Jaimi Dennehy added: “Knowing this, we were faced with the decision of whether to build this platform or determine if one existed that was aligned with our vison of what a national family office offering could be. After an exhaustive search, we chose to partner with Mercer Advisors, a national family wealth office that provides estate planning, tax consulting and return preparation, corporate trustee, and ERISA plan services all in-house led by subject matter experts.”

“As Mercer Advisors Vice Chairman David Barton often comments, ‘By having a panoply of subject matter experts under one roof and guided by the caring hand of their Advisor, we provide a Mayo Clinic approach to financial care seeking to producing outsized results for our clientele,’” said Co-Founder Paul Meyer, “and we are looking forward to partnering with Mercer Advisors and their impressive team going forward.”
