Friends and colleagues for nearly a decade, Mike Mailey and Jared Larson formed Ark Family Wealth in 2020, with a mission to serve individuals and families through comprehensive financial planning.
Mike and Jared met in 2012, working for an alternative investment firm that partnered with the Blackstone Group, one of the world’s largest asset managers in private equity, private credit, real estate, and hedge funds. As Regional Directors, Mike and Jared had the opportunity to meet thousands of financial advisors throughout the country. This gave them an authentic perspective into client challenges, and mindset, the business of financial planning and portfolio management, and the tools and resources advisors were using to help clients. With a shared vision to provide exceptional client experiences and better financial outcomes, Mike and Jared began their own wealth management and financial planning practice.
As plans for the firm were coming to fruition, Jared suffered a fatal injury and passed away. Mike is proud to continue the mission of Ark Family Wealth to honor and represent the memory of Jared. Ark Family Wealth serves all clients’ financial planning needs with a special focus on family and generational planning needs.
Ark Family Wealth pays homage to Jared’s son, Noah, and Mike’s daughter, Parker. We hope our clients think of us as offering refuge from financial uncertainty and providing guidance toward a confident investment and financial plan.
We offer professional wealth management. Whether you’re fresh out of college, well on your way to living your dream, or eagerly approaching retirement, make sure you’re financially prepared to achieve a lifetime of goals. We can help you pursue them with a personalized financial plan.
