Renay Henderson, CFP®

Shareholder, Client Advisor


Having lost her father at an early age, Renay is acutely aware of the importance of having a fully integrated financial, estate and life insurance plan. Because of that experience, the choice to become a financial advisor was an easy one. She has spent the majority of her professional career working with affluent families and their uniquely challenging financial decisions. During her time at Meristem, Renay has been recognized for her skills in creative problem solving and for generating more efficient processes for clients to manage their wealth and was named Shareholder in 2020.

At Meristem, Renay applies the virtues and wisdom her father imparted to her, generosity and integrity among them. In addition to her client advisory responsibilities, Renay often draws from her previous training experiences to teach and mentor the newest members of the Client Advisor Team and the Service Team.
