A Message From Our Managing Partner
It All Started with a Conversation
Corbenic Partners began with one objective in mind – to work with a select group of clients who would value a highly developed approach to managing their wealth.
Our approach was simple, to focus our energy on protecting and managing our client’s wealth and they in turn would support us in our mission.
Thirty years later we are still serving these clients and in many cases their children, friends, and colleagues. What was true then remains true today – we place the interests of our clients above all other considerations.
Our firm started with one client who wanted more than just an advisor, they wanted an advocate who understood them personally and always had their back.
Let’s start your conversation.
We have defined a culture that reflects who we are today and who we aspire to be. Corbenic Partners is focused on the pursuit of excellence, serving our clients, and doing so in a way that builds a legacy we will be proud of.
Invested in You
Over the past decade Corbenic Partners has continued to attract unique individuals that together form a unified team focused on the pursuit of excellence. Combining seasoned professionals with the next generation of leadership provides Corbenic a strong foundation to serve our current clients and sustainability for the future.
