Randy A. Risler, CFS®, AIF®


As Founder and CEO of Nine Pillars Wealth Management I am able to establish our firm’s vision and support a team that shares my penchant for client service. After 22 years of serving clients, I still wake up with an enthusiastic spirit of how I may positively impact client’s lives.

We are truly a boutique shop in an age of automation. I believe our clients value our approach which puts them in the center of our universe every day. We spare no effort or experience in helping our clients pursue and plan for their goals. Simply put, we serve clients how we would want to be served if the roles were reversed.

I knew at a young age that I wanted to be a Financial Advisor. I graduated Cum Laude from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, with a business degree where I majored in corporate finance with an emphasis on economics and securities analysis. My first six years of financial planning and investment consulting were with the accounting firm LarsonAllen. Next, I was recruited by Security Financial Bank to serve as the Founder and President of their Wealth Management division for 10 years. I purchased the Wealth Management division of the bank on January 1, 2015.

It was then that Nine Pillars Wealth Management was born. The name describes the many important financial pillars that we advise clients on….from planning for retirement to establishing a legacy they will leave their loved ones. I hold FINRA Series 6, 7, 26, 53, and 65 securities registrations through Commonwealth Financial Network®. I am also licensed in areas of life, health, and accident insurance. I embrace the ongoing coursework to maintain CFS® and AIF® designations. They are more than designations but rather a commitment to taking a fiduciary approach to advice I deliver.

I enjoy spending time with my wife, Mandi; and our 5 children: Blake, Bennett, Marlee, Briggs and Brax. We reside just south of Eau Claire. We enjoy improving the natural habitat for wildlife and are dedicated to the community and church to which we belong. My core values prioritize serving my clients and the greater community in which I live.
