Our Firm

Continental Investors Services, Inc. is a securities firm incorporated in 1991.  We are registered as a Broker-Dealer with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB).

Although we are based in Washington State, we have branch offices in several other states around the US. 

Choosing an investment firm requires an investor to consider several factors.  There are many competent organizations, each varying in investment philosophy and priorities.  At Continental Investors, we do not opt to be all things to all people.  We have over 30 years of experience managing clients' assets in areas we know well, offering only those products we feel will achieve our clients’ objectives.  Continental Investors Services, Inc. does not currently offer any proprietary products.  We concentrate on fixed-income and value-equity investments, leaving speculative, new hot ideas and unseasoned investments to others. 

Continental Investors is totally committed to maintaining strong personalized relationships with our clients.  Our highest priorities are understanding our clients' investment needs and providing the most suitable investments to fill those needs.  Our representatives recognize the importance of customer service.  If a "house call" is convenient for the client, our representatives use that personal service. 

Continental Investors Services, Inc. has a clearing arrangement with RBC Clearing & Custody, a division of RBC Capital Markets, LLC.  This arrangement enables our firm to offer access to all markets, company research, and quotes.  All accounts held at our clearing firm are protected by SIPC for up to $500,000 ($400,000 in securities, $100,000 in cash).  SIPC protects against loss of capital due to brokerage house failure, not against market loss.  Additional protection, up to 24.5 million, is provided for larger accounts.  

For the municipal securities investor, a brochure is available on the MSRB website (www.msrb.org) with information regarding the protections provided by MSRB rules and information about how to file a complaint with the appropriate regulatory authority.  See our Privacy Policy under Firm Disclosures for more information.
