R.F. Lafferty has changed a lot over its 60-year history to help our clients stay ahead in an ever-evolving industry. To accomplish this, we have built our business on certain fundamental values:

Collaboration - At R.F. Lafferty, we gauge our success by yours. We work hard to understand your goals and needs, and work with you to execute strategies that fit your investment style.

Experience - Located in the heart of New York’s financial district, R.F. Lafferty seeks to attract the industry’s best and brightest professionals to our team.

Family Owned - Ralph F. Lafferty founded the company in 1946 committed to the idea that each and every client was the company’s most valued asset. A new generation now leads the company but we remain true to the original vision.

Independence - R.F. Lafferty does not answer to anyone but our clients. As an independent and family-owned firm, our commitment to your goals will never be compromised by a bias for particular proprietary products, a need to improve the rate of return for stockholders, or to satisfy a board of directors.
