We create value for our people and value for our clients.
We always take the high road, even if it costs us in the short term, because we believe the things that make you richest are the things you do for others.
American Portfolios must seek out the best business solutions, support and services that its financial professionals require to achieve financial freedom for their clients.
American Portfolios’ first responsibility is to its valued employees, the men and women working for us, who provide the highest level of service to our customers—our affiliated financial professionals. American Portfolios is committed to providing a clean, safe, and orderly workplace where employees are treated with respect and dignity, and are recognized for the unique and special qualities they bring to their jobs. American Portfolios encourages equal opportunities in employment, development, and advancement. Employees should feel secure in their positions, know they will be compensated fairly and adequately, and feel free to offer suggestions or bring forth concerns.
Providing optimal service and support to the financial service professionals, their staff, and their clients as well as all others who use our services is one of American Portfolios’ core responsibilities. We must strive to meet our customers’ needs with the highest level of quality and dedicate ourselves to setting the standard of service excellence for our industry.
Fostering positive social and environmental change in the communities where we live and work as well as in the global community is paramount. We must be responsible citizens through our support of good works, honest charities, civic improvements, better health, and education. We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use by protecting the environment and its natural resources.
Shareholder value, our commitment to stockholders, is our final responsibility. Business must make a sound profit. Therefore, we must strive to achieve a balance among the fiscal, social, and environmental responsibilities of our firm, experiment with new ideas and develop new technologies in our efforts to stay ahead of the competition, and create reserves to prepare for adversity. It is our belief that when we operate according to these principles, shareholders will realize a fair return.
I thank you for the opportunity to introduce our company to you.
American Portfolios was conceived by a group of like minded, independent financial service professionals, committed to serving their clients by offering sound financial guidance or planning along with solid investment advice. The firm is owned and operated by individuals who have all worked with clients of their own. I started in the financial services field in 1978 when I was brought into the business by my father Hy Dolber.
As professionals, we will not tolerate or recognize any obligation to market the services or investment products produced by any single company. We understand what it means to seek out and to offer only the best products or services available, without conflict or compromise and this is the same commitment we make to our representatives.
The financial services industry is dynamic and evolving. Barriers have fallen and investors face an almost unlimited and often confusing variety of financial products and investment choices. We believe that financial professionals must have access to a diverse selection of unbiased and high quality investment products and services in order to best meet their client’s objectives.
I thank you for the opportunity to introduce our company to you. We are proud of what has been accomplished thus far and hope that our vision someday may be of benefit to you.
-Lon T. Dolber
We believe that the success of a company is made possible through the hard earned efforts of its people.
