Press Announcement



ST. JOSEPH, MO. February 6, 2012 - Dan Danford, CFP®, Principal/CEO of Family Investment Center, an independent commission-free investment firm that provides financial and portfolio services, has been named one of America's Top Financial Advisors for 2012 by Conquest Press.

An elite group of financial advisors received this recognition. Each advisor will be included in the new book, 2012 America's Top Financial Advisors -The Titans of Wealth Management.

Criteria for inclusion was rigorous and thorough, and includes rankings on industry-recognized lists, number of clients served/client retention, educational background and professional designations, assets under management, professional longevity, regulatory review, and impact his or her services have made on clients.

"Dan deserves this recognition," said Jason White, Ph.D., Principal/Director of Investments for Family Investment Center, and Danford's colleague. "Dan has made a tremendous impact on his clients since he began his investment career back in 1984. So many clients have been with him since the very beginning, and we're very proud of him."

Danford founded Family Investment Center in 1998 to help successful families, individuals, corporations, and foundations manage finances and grow portfolios. The firm uses proven academic techniques to deliberately balance investment risks and rewards. This process has benefitted clients even during the last decade's tumultuous market situations.

Danford started Family Investment Center after success in the trust industry. He envisioned a new type of advisory firm after realizing that clients could prosper when advisors consider a wide universe of investments, and if the process was free from sales commissions and biased research. Industry consultant Marie Swift once cited Danford's "genius business plan" as key to the firm's early success. Clients often mention custodial safety, friendliness, service, and convenience.

Danford and his wife Chris live in St. Joseph. He is a graduate of Missouri Western State University and holds an MBA from Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville. He is a third-year graduate student at Kansas State University where he is pursuing a Ph.D. in Personal Finance. He holds the CFP® designation, belongs to the Financial Planning Association (FPA), and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). He writes frequently for both consumer and industry publications.

Family Investment Center is a Registered Investment Advisory firm serving several hundred key clients throughout the region. The firm manages or advises almost $100 million for families, individuals, corporations, and foundations.
