PrairieFire Wealth Planning, a Des Moines-based independent investment advisory team led by industry veteran Matt Meline, announced it will join Indianapolis-based Sanctuary Wealth. According to a news release from Sanctuary Wealth, PrairieFire is the seventh breakaway group to join Sanctuary’s network of advisers since June, altogether adding more than $2.2 billion in assets under management to the network. Meline has 17 years of experience providing financial planning and wealth management services. He has led numerous advisory teams throughout his career, and previously managed $100 million in assets at Morgan Stanley. Sanctuary Wealth is an $8 billion, partner-owned global wealth management firm with more than 20 independent advisory firms in its network. PrairieFire, which will be bringing on additional financial advisers, is Sanctuary Wealth’s first Iowa firm. “Matt’s mindset in creating PrairieFire Wealth Planning is exactly in line with Sanctuary Wealth’s goal to redefine the independent space with Partnered Independence,” said Jim Dickson, Sanctuary Wealth CEO and founder. “We’re excited to further expand our presence in the Midwest and help Matt and his team serve clients with a forward-thinking vision and expertise.”
