AIF®, CEO, Wealth Advisor
Steve Ennis, AIF®, has been advising investors professionally since 1985, initially working for a large broker-dealer firm headquartered in Boston. In 1997 Steve restructured his firm, The Ennis Company, as an independent financial services firm. At that point, Steve abandoned the traditional Wall Street brokerage firm model seeking to provide his clients with objective financial advice, backed by the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer firm.
Steve provides strategic direction for The Ennis Company and works directly with clients specializing in financial planning and asset management. Additionally, Steve oversees corporate retirement plans for clients and has earned the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) designation which equips fiduciary-minded advisors to work with plan sponsors to help manage their financial goals while providing the financial independence that comes from a fiduciary standard of loyalty and trust.
Steve is a multi-generation Floridian and enjoys spending time with his three daughters. He enjoys fishing, hunting, and virtually any activity outdoors with family and friends. Steve earned a bachelor’s degree in banking and finance from the University of Southern Mississippi with coursework performed at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Steve maintains FINRA Series 7, 6, 22, and 63 licenses, held at LPL, as well as life and health insurance licenses.
