Clancy Stumpf & Company was founded in April, 2009, during the aftermath of the worst financial crisis this country has ever seen.  Many brokerage firms were on the brink of collapse and were more focused on self preservation than taking care of their clients.  I felt I owed it to my clients to start my own practice where I could focus on their fianncial planning needs and provide them the level of personal service they desired.  I affiliated my practice with LPL Financial because of their reputation, their financial integrity, and their world class resources.

About LPL Financial

LPL Financial is the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer*, a top RIA custodian, and a leading independent consultant to retirement plans.  As of 12/31/2011, LPL Financial had over $330 billion in customer assets under management.

Headquartered in Boston, Charlotte, and San Diego, LPL Financial offers technology, comprehensive clearing and compliance services, practice management programs and training, and independent research to over 17,000 financial professionals and approximately 670 financial institutions nationwide.

Through the 1989 merger of two brokerage firms—Linsco (established in 1968) and Private Ledger (founded in 1973)—the founders of LPL Financial sought to create a formidable alternative to Wall Street firms.  By not offering proprietary products or engaging in investment banking activities, the perception of a conflict of interest between the firm and the client is eliminated.  When financial advisors are liberated from conflicts and biases, they are free to provide objective advice and choose the products and services that are best for their clients.

Our Process

Our process begins with a meeting where we strive to learn as much about your financial and personal picture as possible.  Understanding your financial picture is pretty straight forward but understanding how you FEEL about certain financial topics is the most important element in providing you with the most appropriate advice.

Once we truly understand your goals and concerns, we then begin bringing solutions to the table.  It may take weeks or even months to incorporate all the strategies into your plan depending on how complex your situation is.

Ongoing monitoring is a key element in the process.  We will meet periodically to ensure that our plan is still on target and to make any adjustments that are necessary.

Our goal is to build a relationship with you that will last a lifetime.
