This is the answer you’ll get if you ask anyone at our firm why they do what they do. At Scheff Thompson Cress Investment Group, we put clients first, and it shows – from client relationships that span generations to our proactive approach to client communication. We also find that by helping our clients understand the investments they own and – most important – why they own them, they feel more confident in the decisions they make and the relationships they have with us. We believe investments are important – but never more important than the people who own them. It’s an approach our clients appreciate. And we think you will, too.

You can also turn to us for the banking, lending and cash management services vital to your business. Through Raymond James, we also offer advisory services related to public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, as well as restructurings.

We understand the challenges business owners often face and have helped many new, growing and mature businesses succeed. Most importantly, we recognize that your business is unique and we can serve as a single, trusted source for financial advice – leaving you more time to devote to the growth of your business.
