History

As a former Portfolio Manager at Citibank and Partner at Dreman Value Management, Tom Famigletti felt that his clients were underserved. At the time, he believed that the wealth management industry was headed in the wrong direction and that it paid far too much attention to volume, fees and transactions.

Tom founded Griffin Asset Management in 1995 as an Independent RIA with the singular objective of providing a more distinct and better level of service for his clients. A few years later, he convinced his son, Doug, to leave his position at Goldman Sachs to join him as a partner. Likeminded and highly experienced investors, Michael Jamison and John Carey, would later come on board as partners to be instrumental in leading and growing the firm to its present size.

The Griffin (Latin: Gryphus) is a mythological creature from classic antiquity that stood guard over the most valuable possessions of all it served. When Tom founded the company, he wanted the namesake to be symbolic of the significant fiduciary responsibility we have to our clients. As a firm, we strive to operate with the utmost honesty and integrity every day and seek to provide our clients with world class investment counsel.
