Director of Portfolio Management
When he joined Buckingham Strategic Wealth in 2005, Ben Lanning already knew he loved the investment business. What he discovered when he came to Buckingham was that he’d found the perfect place to do it.
Ben serves as the director of portfolio management, working with Buckingham’s dedicated team of portfolio managers to monitor clients’ portfolios and ensure appropriate allocations. Previously, he was a relationship director and director of trading operations, working with both advisors and with clients to make sense of the technical, research-based philosophy behind the firm’s fixed income and equity trading approach. H
Ben started with the firm as an equity trader and fell in love with client-first, bottom line second attitude his colleagues espoused. Knowing he could make recommendations without bias, that his colleagues spent their days collaborating on how best to solve a problem for a client and being a part of the evidence-based movement keeps Ben excited and engaged.
Prior to joining Buckingham, Ben was a senior trader with Raymond James. He is a graduate of St. Petersburg College and Eckerd College.
He and his wife, Natalie, live in St. Louis with their two children.
