About Us

Located in Omaha, Nebraska, the Atchison Wealth Team aims to provide you with an abundance of value through time-tested financial principles and an ongoing client relationship. As our team serves the wealth planning needs of clients in Nebraska, Iowa, and all throughout the country, it is wonderfully rewarding to help guide you toward your lifelong dreams, and we’re equipped with years of experience and the expertise of two CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professionals—Brett Murray.

With every crucial decision we discuss with you, we always ask ourselves if this would be the same prudent financial advice we would want for our own family members. That’s how we best guide our clients, helping you prepare for and transition into retirement, while also maintaining the highest quality of life after you retire.

As the world of financial planning and investment management can be complicated to navigate, we listen to your financial goals and offer a comprehensive suite of financial planning and wealth management solutions to help you meet and exceed them. During times of change in your life or in the markets, it can feel overwhelming. Our expertise is in helping you craft a clear and focused plan that fits into your story.

The Atchison Wealth Team is an independent advisor, ensuring that we are not conflicted to sell any proprietary investment products to you. This independence allows us to sit on the same side of the table as you and help you find the investments that are in your best interests, not ours.

You invest in your future. We invest in you.

We can guide you in your retirement planning, suggesting alternative streams of income where applicable, so that you can comfortably ease into retirement and a well-planned future.
Tax-Integrated Planning
With our team’s tax-integrated planning guidance, you can feel confident in mitigating your taxes, while also working to enhance the use of your income sources.

As charitable giving is a part of our core values, you can trust our team to help you achieve your philanthropic goals with guidance on a focused approach to charitable giving. From identifying charitable organizations of interest to helping you maximize the impact of your gifts, you’ll be on your way to giving back while making the most tax-efficient choices along the way.
Inheritance Planning
Though it can be an uncomfortable topic, inheritance and estate planning will be one of the most important things you can do to help protect your assets and help your family avoid unnecessary taxes and potential disagreements in the event that something happens to you. Our team approach can help you with the process of amending or creating an estate plan that truly matches your wishes.
Tax-Efficient Investing
Investing your money might seem complicated, but it’s critical to helping you achieve your financial planning goals. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced team like ours for guidance in choosing the right investments, as well as the right accounts to hold your investments. Additionally, we can help you maximize the tax efficiency of your portfolio and lower the effects of taxes on your investments.
Community Impact
It’s a passion of ours to provide clients with opportunities to support local and global community economic development, revitalization, and sustainability. Through community impact investing, we can help you allocate a portion of your portfolio to social impact assets that will truly leave a mark within your local community.
