Our Story


In 1985, Tom Berthel and Fred Fisher started Berthel Fisher & Company. Working as financial advisors, they couldn’t find a financial services firm that met their needs and decided to invest in their own.



Since the day we opened our doors in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, our financial professionals have been our top priority. We’re owned and managed by people who know what it’s like to be in the field, working hard to grow a business. Even today, Tom Berthel still maintains his personal clients. For over 32 years we’ve offered a wide array of investment products and back-office support to provide outstanding service to our financial professionals.

We have a track record of success. Over the last quarter century, Berthel Fisher & Company has become known for its stability and unwavering dedication to our financial professionals, and that is something that will never change, even as we continue to grow.

Today, as a top financial services firm, we support a diverse array of investment specialties and skills. With our investment products and advisory services, you will have all the tools and programs available to meet the needs of your clients. We’re constantly adapting to the ever- changing industry, but our philosophy of providing financial professionals with the support and resources necessary for their business to succeed will never change.
