August 23, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. — Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, a national company based in Philadelphia, opened a new branch in Florence this summer with a goal of serving the Pee Dee community.

On Wednesday, the Florence branch joined ambassadors from the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the new office and the company’s chamber membership.

John Chase, a financial advisor for Janney, had his family with him to celebrate the moment.

“My mother, father, grandmother, my children and my wife were all here today, and that meant a lot to me,” Chase said. “Ever since Day One, my family has always supported me in this endeavor of being a financial advisor and serving clients. I’m very grateful for that family support, and they’ve never wavered.”

Janney Montgomery Scott LLC, also known as Janney Financial, provides advice and consultation to individual, corporate and institutional clients.

Chase said joining the chamber will allow the business to be more involved in the community.

“We want to support Florence,” Chase said. “The chamber does a lot of great things for businesses in Florence as far as bringing them together and networking. As a whole, it provides a lot of growth opportunities for the Florence business community, and we want to support that. We recognize the chamber’s importance to this area, and we want to be a part of that.”

The Florence office, located at 1831 W. Evans St., Suite 220 in the BB&T Plaza, opened in July when Chase made the move from the firm’s Columbia branch to launch the new location. Chase, a certified financial planner, joined Janney in November of 2017 after more than 16 years of experience in the financial field.

“We’re very committed to Florence,” Chase said. “This is a nice, new office and we’re invested to be right here in the community. Hopefully, Florence will support us, as well. Our goal is to manage people’s wealth, finances and investments with the utmost integrity and honest. We will continue to do that, and we hope to develop a relationship with them and show them that we are very trustworthy organization.”

According to its website, Janney provides expertise in many areas, including guidance about asset management, corporate and public finance, equity and fixed income investing, equity research, institutional equity and fixed income sales and trading, investment strategy, financial planning, mergers and acquisitions, public and private capital raising, portfolio management, retirement and income planning and wealth management.

Janney is an independently operated subsidiary of The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC).
