You need to feel confident that the wealth management firm you choose will be there over the long run to support your financial goals. You want a firm you can turn to in every market condition, through the various stages of your life—and quite possibly for generations to come.

Janney delivers by putting clients at the center of everything we do. Our almost 200-year history of helping clients design a plan with their financial goals in mind shows an enduring stability and consistent approach. It’s a legacy you won’t find at most other wealth management firms.

Our pillars of stability support your relationship with us

Two hands shaking

Penn Mutual provides stability

  • Janney has operated for more than 40 years as an independent subsidiary of The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company, a Fortune 1000 company.
  • Janney is fully backed by Penn Mutual’s consistently high credit ratings.

    Two people networking

    Privately owned — we focus on you

    • Our focus is on building long-term relationships with clients, not on managing quarterly earnings expectations, reacting to public pressures.
    • We offer no proprietary investment products.
    • We provide the personal attention of a boutique firm with the services and resources of a large organization.

    • Janney is underpinned by a solid balance sheet and capital base that goes well beyond regulatory requirements.
    • We do not maintain any public debt, allowing the firm to operate completely unleveraged.

    A compass and a map

    Innovation enhances your experience

    • Janney’s capital strength allows for investment in capabilities and services to enhance the client and financial advisor experience.
    • Our resources are largely deployed to support our core wealth management business.
