Choosing an investment firm requires an investor to consider many factors.  There are many competent organizations, each varying in investment philosophy and investment priorities.  At Continental Investors, we do not opt to be all things to all people.  Continental Investors has over 30 years of experience managing clients' assets in areas we know well.  We concentrate on fixed-income and value-equity investments.  We leave 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 investment vehicles to fill these.  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 our clearing firm.  Through this arrangement the firm is able 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.  

During the process of finding a niche in the financial services market, Continental Investors Services, Inc. decided to examine the full range of investment products. The firm offers only those products it feels will achieve client objectives. To this end, Continental Investors Services, Inc. does not currently offer any proprietary products, and maintains an in-house due diligence department for product review.
