Folger Nolan Fleming Douglas Incorporated marked its 125th anniversary in 2014. Moving forward, we continue our efforts to make each year successively better by building upon the solid foundation and core values established by prior generations. We are proud of our rich history, our employees and the services they provide.

We offer every one of our clients the individual attention, service and high quality counsel that distinguish our firm. We prefer a long term approach that establishes a relationship of trust at the outset and continues to build rapport over time. We recognize that no two clients are alike, so each investment strategy emphasizes individual objectives, risk tolerance and preferences. While the firm offers a full range of investment vehicles, we do not offer proprietary products. This allows our representatives to be objective and stay focused on client needs with no pressure to sell a specific product. Our corporate philosophy remains unchanged: we put our clients’ interests first at all times. We believe the commitment to this premise has permitted us to remain a successful, independent, family-owned firm since 1889. Looking forward, we will continue our efforts to provide our clients with the quality services and sound advice they have come to expect from us.
