The story begins in Davenport, Iowa in the mid-1950's when Robert Ausdal entered the financial services business. As his practice grew, he became increasingly aware of the importance of personal relationships. He also realized that to truly serve his clients, he needed to put their needs ahead of those of himself or any corporate interest. In 1979, Robert B. Ausdal & Associates, was established. For nearly thirty years the family firm served investors throughout the Quad-Cities area.
Upon Mr. Ausdal's passing in 2006, his son Rob, who had been working with the firm since age 16 inherited the business. Rob shared his father’s values but at the same time, realized that the business environment was changing. Rather than cling to his legacy, Rob chose to share it, surrounding himself with other experienced professionals that offered complimentary areas of expertise. New partners brought unique skills and a proven track-record to the team and in comparatively short time, the "mom and pop" firm evolved into "Ausdal Financial Partners". Recently, AFP has been recognized as one of the fastest growing independent broker-dealer's in the nation.
The Ausdal Team
While Ausdal Financial Partners remains a small, relationship driven company, we enjoy a substantial industry history. In fact, the firm's principals share over 100 years of financial services experience. Moreover, we are fortunate that the complimentary skills of our management team provide us with a breadth of expertise that ranges from securities and broker-dealer operations to money management, insurance and private investing.
Perhaps more importantly, day in, day out, the AFP operations staff proves that the Midwestern work ethic is no myth. Our team is very aware that ours is a service business and they pride themselves in their competence, responsiveness and genuine concern for our advisors and investors.
