  • Firm Philosophy

    Our business philosophy is separate yet linked to our investment philosophy and is incorporated into our guiding principles. From a business standpoint, we always put the client first and hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards. Integrity is non-negotiable at Crawford Investment Counsel, Inc. This philosophy combined with a long-term approach and a preference for investing in high-quality securities has led to an extremely high level of client continuity. This measure of business success, along with the growth and development of our team, is what makes us most proud.
