Fee-Only retirement planner and wealth manager located in Vancouver, WA, serving clients locally and across the country.

Ben Lies is a Vancouver, WA fee-only financial planner and Wealth Manager. Delphi Advisers provides retirement planning and investment management services to help clients grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial adviser, Ben Lies is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.  

Ben Lies is the Founder of Delphi Advisers located in Vancouver, WA.

I am a native of the Pacific Northwest and I have been involved with investments and financial planning the majority of my life. My investing life began in my late teens and early 20's, delving into real estate and then moved on to Global Capital Markets shortly after that. I have spent the better part of the past decade working directly in financial services and as a Registered Investment Adviser (IAR).

My undergraduate degree is in Business from the University of Washington, my MBA, specializing in International Business, is from Portland State University and I also hold a Certificate in Business Strategy from Cornell.

I am incredibly passionate about helping people achieve financial success through planning and investing appropriately. There are so many firms and people in this industry that are selling products and giving poor advice while charging layers and layers of fees. The reason I started Delphi Advisers is to do my part in changing this industry and give people a true fiduciary approach to achieving financial success.
