About SMITH HAYES
SMITH HAYES Companies was established on January 25, 1985, by Thomas C. Smith and Thomas D. Hayes. SMITH HAYES Financial Services Corporation, a securities broker dealer, opened for business on December 18, 1985, as a subsidiary to SMITH HAYES Companies. We started with three employees and have grown exponentially in assets under management and financial professionals. In 2002, SMITH HAYES acquired the retail offices of Kirkpatrick Pettis in Omaha, Lincoln, and Columbus. We are licensed in all 50 states and have affiliated registered representatives through the Midwest. SMITH HAYES Companies also formed SMITH HAYES Advisers, Inc., a registered investment adviser, on October 23, 1997, and SMITH HAYES Management Company on December 5, 2000.
SMITH HAYES was founded on five core principles: Partnership, Communication, Education, Solutions, and Trust. Over the years, company objectives have been modified to keep pace with changing customer and market demands. What has remained unchanged are our core principles. We believe that by working together through clear communication, education, and problem solving we earn and build trust from you, our clients. These tools build mutual respect, and these are the tools that we believe differentiate us from others.
