We believe in – and live by – a philosophy of excellence.

Average is not good enough … Our goal at Family Investment Center is excellence. We find excellent investment products and supervise an excellent service package. We maintain a library of excellent research materials and financial planning resources. We also demand top safety and security for our clients.

We won’t settle for average. We continually seek top managers or securities and meld them into superior custom portfolios. Each palette of investments is carefully tailored to personal or family goals. We enlist excellent managers, research, resources, and effort for our clients. Don’t settle for average. You deserve excellence.

Please search our blog posts for answers to common investment questions, and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with you first-hand.

Dan Danford serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of Family Investment Center, a full-service, commission-free investment advisory firm. Based in St. Joseph, Mo., Family Investment Center serves clients in the Kansas City area and across 13 states.


Dan began his investment career as a bank trust officer and has been advising clients on how to preserve and manage wealth for over 25 years.


He was one of the founders of the Trust Company of St. Joseph, a nationally-recognized Missouri-chartered trust company, and then went on to form Family Investment Center, a commission-free advisory firm. Having seen first-hand the many ways bank trust and investment companies work and provide services, he feels strongly that a commission-free firm offers a better way for most people to receive independent, objective advice at reasonable rates, with a high level of personalized service.


Dan favors solution-based planning and proven investment strategies.
