Our Story

Brad Scott, Steve Lambert and Ernie Renner founded SLR Financial in April, 2012. Together we have 35 years combined experience as financial advisors, spanning the worst performing decade in market history. As close friends and colleagues, we worked loyally for a large financial firm that was seized by the FDIC to be absorbed by an even larger financial institution. This situation presented us with a unique perspective to what transpired during the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent years. Our experience through these trying times compelled us to create an independent firm built on the principles we value most. As independent advisors, we have the flexibility to navigate these uncertain times with unbiased, innovative strategies. In an environment of increased volatility and record low interest rates, we believe your investment strategies require personalized attention more than ever before. We develop strategies geared towards preserving and growing your wealth. From the more experienced trader to the novice investor; we strive to work with our members, at their pace, to make sure their experience is comfortable, positive and rewarding. 

SLR Financial is built on our commitment to three key goals: to provide sound financial plans tailored specifically for each individual; to consistently deliver exceptional service; and to develop a long-lasting relationship with each member.
