Text Size: Decrease Increase
“Janney is a firm that’s both employee and client friendly. Employees enjoy the culture of our firm and can feel confident working here because of our stable environment. Clients feel secure investing with us and seeking our advice because they know that we’re a successful firm who has been in business for over 175 years.” -- Todd Mitchell, Branch Manager & Financial Advisor, Baltimore MD

Grounded in the Past
Janney's focus has been, and will continue to be, the long-term success of our clients and Financial Advisors.  Our history of over 175 years gives us the knowledge to understand that even turbulent market cycles can and will be weathered when a long-term perspective and focus is maintained.

We have time-tested history of financial stability, with a strong equity capital base and ownership by the Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company. Our relationship with Penn Mutual is over 25 years old and allows us the independence to operate our business privately and securely.

Both Janney and Penn Mutual have a conservative operating model, and combined with an unbroken string of profitable years, we continue to uphold our commitment to our clients and Financial Advisors.

Focused on the Future
We know that the success of our business depends on the expertise our Financial Advisors provide their clients for the future, it also depends on the plans Firm management oversees and implements to continue Janney’s success in future years.

Among our many ongoing commitments to our financial professionals, we will continue to provide our Financial Advisors with access to numerous professional development opportunities, thought leadership and the resources needed to grow their practices. We remain committed to adding to our team of Financial Advisors on an ongoing basis. We empower our employees to deliver outstanding service, advice and innovative ideas to clients, work in a resourceful and relationship-based culture, be active community participants and continue building a financially strong and profitable business.

Our business plans for the future include continued delivery of:

  • Expertise and state-of-the art products from our Wealth Management team
  • Experienced support from corporate partners and professionals at our Philadelphia headquarters
