Meet Our Team

The Lohmeyer-Bourne Financial Group was founded in 2002 as a succession to an established practice at Piper Jaffray. Piper Jaffray was acquired by UBS Financial Services in 2006, and the team's branch was acquired by Stifel in 2009. Throughout these transitions, the Lohmeyer-Bourne Financial Group has continuously provided high-touch, team-directed comprehensive services to our clients.

Within a collaborative team structure, we provide individuals and families with personalized attention and customized investment strategies based upon a careful and thorough understanding of their financial objectives and risk tolerances. We work closely with clients to identify their primary goals, including retirement, wealth management, estate planning issues, tax-efficient investment strategies, education funding, insurance planning, and risk management strategies. Once we have a grasp of our clients' situation, we develop customized long-term plans designed to help generate returns while mitigating risk to their wealth for current and future generations. We also collaborate closely with our clients' tax and legal advisors, and other trusted advisors, to develop cohesive financial legacy strategies.
