GreenCourse Financial Advisors to Join Buckingham Strategic Wealth

St. Louis, September 1, 2020 – Buckingham Strategic Wealth, LLC (“Buckingham” or “Buckingham Strategic Wealth”) today announced that GreenCourse Financial Advisors, LLC (“GreenCourse”), a registered investment advisor based in Chesterfield, Missouri, is joining Buckingham.

GreenCourse’s team of advisory professionals, including Dale Lindhorst, CEO of GreenCourse, and Maryann Vognild, CFP®, principal and director of planning for GreenCourse, will become part of the Buckingham team upon completion of the transaction, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.

“As a well-respected advisory firm in the Greater St. Louis area, Dale, Maryann and the team at GreenCourse are well known to us, and their reputation in the industry precedes them,” said Justin Ferri, chairman of Buckingham Strategic Wealth. “We are delighted they have decided to become part of Buckingham.”

“Buckingham is a like-minded firm which is close to us both in terms of investment and planning philosophy and physical location. Our commitment to lifelong learning and doing what is best for our clients matched Buckingham’s culture,” said Dale Lindhorst. “We foresee a seamless transition for our seven-member financial planning and wealth management team, and our client base, which will now have access to all the resources of a large, nationally recognized firm.”

“Becoming part of Buckingham offers tremendous opportunities to our team and our clients. At Buckingham, they thoughtfully consider questions and approach life with honest concern for those they meet,” said Maryann Vognild. “We wanted to make sure we found a partner able to support our needs, so client service didn’t suffer, and allowed Dale and I to still take care of our employees. Being able to take administrative tasks off our plate will give us more time for mentoring and client service. We are looking forward to growing together with this team of genuinely client-focused, well-respected wealth managers.”

The GreenCourse team will serve clients from Buckingham’s St. Louis headquarters.
