our story

you have our attention

Substantial wealth opens up limitless possibilities for individuals and their families. Sam Bain founded Bainco in 1987 on the premise that significant assets demand attentive management. He distinguished Bainco as a wealth management firm focused on holistic and objective asset management at a time when transaction-based investing was the norm. He offered a customized investment management approach along with an exceptional commitment to client service. Sam believed that clients were best served by being the center of a collaborative team whereby Bainco assumes the lead role of trusted advisor. That fundamental belief remains the foundation of Bainco’s core values upon which each and every client relationship is built. We work closely with families to help them formulate overall objectives for their assets. We then plan and implement individual strategies for success, refining them as time passes and circumstances change.

Significant wealth also carries with it special responsibilities. We believe personal financial assets deserve disciplined management to enhance their potential and add value both economically and intrinsically. Sound management should not only protect wealth and limit taxation; it should also increase assets over time through appropriate investing and customized planning. Ultimately, such management affords affluent families opportunities to pursue new business ventures, achieve personal lifestyle goals, and prepare for a satisfying retirement. It can also ensure well-being for future generations and provide a host of opportunities for charitable and other personal endeavors that they find most important.

Our story is best told in person. We welcome the opportunity to discuss ways in which Bainco can become an essential resource for you and your family and for generations to come.
