Evans May Wealth is an independent wealth management firm dedicated to empowering its clients to enjoy financial stability in retirement by devising and executing upon dynamic investment strategies that convert wealth into long-term income.

“Our clients rely on us to create a roadmap for financial flexibility well into retirement,” Evans said. “Sanctuary provides the resources we need to deliver on our promise to clients, from the technical capabilities for day-to-day operations to the access to unique investments and technology that will help us continually grow our business. Our move to independence lets us control our future going forward.”

“The concept of Partnered Independence espoused by Sanctuary Wealth really appealed to Lizzie, Ian and me, as we share an unrelenting commitment to being fiduciaries and putting our clients’ best interests first, no matter what,” May said. “We are confident Sanctuary provides the foundation necessary for Evans May Wealth to not only get a head-start in the independent space, but to also continually improve upon our original vision for our new firm.”

“Both Lizzie and Brooke were among Forbes’ Best-in-State and Top Women Wealth Advisors this year, and both have long stood out to me as leaders in their field,” said Jim Dickson, CEO and founder of Sanctuary Wealth. “Ian’s expertise beyond the public markets – increasingly a point of interest, according to our highest-performing FAs – will also be a tremendous asset. We look forward to providing the entire Evans May Wealth team with the infrastructure and support they need to best serve their clients.”
