Personalized Family Office Services

Who We Are

Meridian Financial is a boutique multi-family office

Meridian was created with the guiding principle to increase your most valuable resource, your time.

We recognize that you have an opportunity cost when managing your finances. By working with Meridian, you can focus your attention on other goals.

Meridian achieves this by offering a full range of family office services, as well as extended services in life events and special projects.

These services are tailored to your specific preferences. Together with you, we determine the set of custom services, reporting metrics, preferred delivery of information, frequency of conversations, and special project needs.

As a result, you gain increased clarity, greater confidence, the comfort of a trusted partner, and ultimately, greater time freedom.
