My Profile

Lawrence S. Richards, CFP® 

Branch Manager

Vice President / Investments

After being with a competitor and its predecessor firms for over 11 years, I moved to Janney in West Chester, PA in March of 2012.  I was attracted to Janney because of their 175 year history of placing the needs of their clients' first, and excellent reputation of providing sound investment advice.  In addition to working closely with my clients, I currently serve as Branch Manager of the West Chester, PA office.

I earned the prestigious Certified Financial Planner designation in 2004, pursuing the rigorous coursework to ensure that my clients receive the highest level of advice possible.  I routinely enroll in and complete continuing education classes to keep informed and remain updated on current investment, financial and estate planning matters.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Finance from Rider University in 1989.

I live in Chester Springs, PA with my wife and two children.  We are supporters of several charities, including "Adopt A Pig," which raises money to support children while they are in hospital receiving treatment.  My family and I also enjoy going to the beach and fishing.
