Fiduciary duty to clients is our first principle.

We're built on the simple idea that we serve our clients, not the other way around.

In the beginning...

Our founding partners came up with the idea for Greenspring in 2002 while working for two of the world’s largest brokerage firms. Thrust into a fast-paced and competitive sales culture with little more than a phone book, a desk and a phone, it quickly became clear that “clients” took a backseat to “commissions”. But we had a different vision of what we wanted our careers to look like and how we wanted to work with our clients. So in 2004 we struck out on our own with a handful of clients who believed in us and a different vision for the future where we existed to serve them and not the other way around. From the beginning, we left behind the lack of transparency and conflicts of interest that made it so difficult to serve our clients in the best way possible and fully embraced a fiduciary duty to clients, placing their interests before our own. We always believed that if we worked hard, aligned our interests with our clients and did the right thing for them, kept our promises, gave back to the community and hired great people the rest would take care of itself. Nearly 15 years later we have been incredibly fortunate to work with great clients, build an awesome team and give back hundreds of thousands of dollars to the communities in which we live and work through our Greenspring Charitable Fund and Greenspring Grant Program. At Greenspring, we have much to be grateful for and while a lot has changed since the beginning, one thing has remained constant – our clients come first.

Since our inception, we’ve fully embraced a fiduciary duty to our clients and put their interests first. Why would anyone want to work with an advisor who doesn’t?

Awards & recognition.

We’re proud to have been recognized for the work that we do. As a trusted advisor to our clients, an employer committed to a culture of service and excellence, and as a leader calling for transparency in our industry, we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but are even more excited for what’s to come.
