Our values, our mission, our pledge


Our values

Client First

We take care of our clients and their financial well-being. Only when we help them achieve success do we achieve our own.

Conservatism

We take a long-term approach. Discipline in decision making translates to a strong, stable firm for clients, advisors, associates and shareholders.

Independence

We value our independence as a company and respect the right of professionals who affiliate with us to make decisions in the best interests of their clients.

Integrity

We are forthright in our approach and earn each client’s trust.


Our Mission

Our business is people and their financial well-being. Therefore, in the pursuit of our goals, we will conduct ourselves in accordance with the following precepts: 

  • Our clients always come first.
  • We must provide the highest level of service with integrity.
  • Assisting our clients in the attainment of their financial objectives is our most worthy enterprise.
  • We must communicate with our clients clearly and frequently.
  • Our investments and services must be of superior quality.
  • Teamwork – cooperating with and providing assistance and support to our fellow associates – is fundamental to sustaining a quality work environment that nurtures opportunities for unparalleled service, personal growth and job satisfaction.
  • Continuing education is necessary to maintain the timeliness of investment knowledge, tax law information and financial planning techniques.
  • Innovation is requisite to our survival in a changing world.
  • To emulate other members of our industry requires us to continue to work hard; to excel beyond our peers requires us to provide an even higher caliber of service to our clients.
  • We must give something back to the communities in which we live and work.

We believe that putting the financial well-being of our clients first ultimately serves the best interests of our shareholders, our communities and ourselves. Remaining responsive to the needs of our clients in a financial environment characterized by constant change is our continuing challenge.
