Center Square Asset Management was founded in November 2005 by the husband-and-wife team of Kenneth and Deborah Lane. After spending years working for large financial institutions, Deborah and Ken grew tired of working for a parent company that dictated what investments they could offer to their clients.
Deborah and Ken knew that this was not appropriate, given the differences in their clients' financial goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon. In addition, the financial services industry had become extremely complex, leaving many investors confused by the variety and type of investment options available to them.
Deborah and Ken decided to create the type of firm they believe was needed in this new environment of complex decisions, impersonal service, and one-size-fits-all solutions. They chose to partner with Commonwealth Financial Network®, one of the preeminent independent broker/dealers in the United States. The alliance with Commonwealth ensures that clients receive a wide variety of investment choices and financial planning services to help them achieve their goals in a seamless and efficient manner by providing back office, investment, and technology support.
