This journey is different for each individual and we offer the tools, resources and products to discover the impact your clients want to have through the investments they make with you.

Our firm was formed over 50 years ago by two brothers to help manage their families’ money, In 2001, I acquired the firm and rebranded it as Vanderbilt Financial Group*. I’m often asked why the name “Vanderbilt” was chosen; the answer is simple: Cornelius Vanderbilt had the foresight to invest in an innovative transportation system in America which connected a country spread over a large land mass, was the foundation of our modern-day infrastructure, and is still in use today. Our team celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of Vanderbilt that so many of our independent advisors also possess. And finally, the Vanderbilt name is reputable as one who understands the attainment of wealth and of risk, which is why our advisors and their clients turn to us to invest in their future.
Everyone on the Vanderbilt team displays a passionate, vibrant, and entrepreneurial vision committed to providing advisor independence with the support of a collaborative community. If you are a leader, an entrepreneur, who is committed to providing your clients with the best organization to serve their needs, you owe it to yourself to contact us and experience the “Vanderbilt Difference!”
