With nearly 40 years in the Financial Services industry, Wealth Manager and Partner Erick Ficken manages his independent practice at Kingsview in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Growing up between Augusta, Georgia and North Augusta, South Carolina, Mr. Ficken attended Newberry College, graduating with a degree in Business Administration. An early favorite college course on the financial markets stirred Erick’s interest and he has enjoyed sharing his passion of assisting families with managing their finances ever since. Whether clients first become friends or friends become clients, he takes joy in developing relationships and plans to keep doing so for as long as he can.
Though prior firms often hindered his ability to fully embrace the fiduciary model, he is grateful to have found with Kingsview a true independent platform to offer sophisticated wealth management services. These services include personalized guidance, client centric financial planning, professional portfolio management, streamlined performance reporting, and a collaboration with tax and legal professionals.
Now residing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Mr. Ficken at one time served as Myrtle Beach’s Mayor for eight years, Chairman of the State Water Resource Commission and President of the South Carolina’s Municipal Association. He is a member of Trinity Church and a member and past President of the Dunes Golf and Beach Club. Erick has two married daughters and three granddaughters.
