Meredith Wealth Planning
Fee-Only financial planner located in Maryville, IL, serving clients locally and across the country
Mark Meredith is a fee-only financial planner and the Founder of Meredith Wealth Planning located in Maryville, IL.
In 2010 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance with a concentration in Financial Planning from Eastern Illinois University. By 2014, I had completed all of the requirements to earn the CFP® certification. Right after graduation, I started as a financial advisor with a national insurance firm. I discovered quickly it was not a good fit, as they were more interested in selling high commissioned products than providing objective advice.
In 2011 I was hired by a local community bank as a financial consultant to design and monitor investment/financial plans for clients. By 2018 I was recognized by Forbes as one of the top 1,000 financial advisors of the next generation. Shortly after that, our bank sold to another bank, and I decided it was time to move on and start a mission I had always envisioned by launching my own firm. My goal was to work with a smaller group of clients more closely, and reduce fees to a more equitable model.
My wife, Rebecca, and I live in O'Fallon IL with our two children, Sawyer and Cecilia. We also enjoy the company of our Jack Russell Terrier, Oliver.

How Meredith Wealth Planning is Different:
We do not engage in market timing, stock picking, sector picking, or attempt to pick the best fund managers. There are large bodies of research that show these methods do not work, and that structuring a sound portfolio can be done by utilizing passively managed funds that target a few factors that have shown to drive portfolio returns.
Meredith Wealth Planning does not charge fees based on assets under management. Rather, we charge the same flat annual fee for all clients, which is $5,700.
