About Plancorp

 Jeff Buckner By: Jeff Buckner

I, and subsequently Plancorp,  was the founding member of The Global Association of Independent Advisors™ (GAIA). The association consists of a group of firms from around the world that all serve as fiduciaries for their client. We share best practices in order to learn from each other, so we can all better serve our clients. In September of 2018, I was elected Chairman and will serve a 2019-2020 term. Find out more about who we are and what we do in the video below.
