Brian Carney Bio:

Brian Carney is the co-founder and face of RiversEdge Advisors, LLC. From helping clients to business development to volunteering in the community, his passion and zeal for financial planning shines through in all that he does.

Beginning in 2001, Brian has spent his entire career in the financial services industry, working two local firms prior to merging his practice with RiversEdge Advisors in 2014. Not only has this merger allowed Brian to continue providing purely independent and conflict-free financial advice but has given him the opportunity to truly hone his craft and share that with each and every one of his clients. As his experience has evolved, Brian has found his niche serving business owners and entrepreneurs seeking comprehensive planning services.

A lifelong Delawarean, Brian graduated from the Tatnall School and Ursinus College. He has earned various industry designations including CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP® ), Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC® ), Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA ), Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF® ), and Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA® ). Simplifying the complex, obtaining the seemingly unobtainable, and empowering his clients to feel financially confident are what motivate him on a regular basis. On any given day, you can find Brian going above and beyond to make sure his clients are well taken care of. As a gentleman with a positive attitude and proactive demeanor, Brian is heavily involved with client relations. His personality and dedication enhance the RiversEdge client experience from start to finish.

Brian is married to his college sweetheart, Kristen, and together they have three children. As a family, they spend a lot of time exploring and making long-lasting memories together. Brian is a volunteer coach for his sons’ football, basketball and baseball teams, and loves any chance he gets to spend with his family. Passionate about animals, their family regularly fosters dogs through Out of the Woods Rescue in Medford, New Jersey. With Kristen leading the way, Brian’s family fostered and helped 13 dogs find forever homes over the past 2 years. When he isn’t dedicating his time to his family, sports, or animals, Brian is heavily involved with his alma mater, the Tatnall School, in Wilmington, Delaware.
