As a Registered Investment Advisor, H.M. Payson is one of the longest-standing independent firms in the United States. Founded in 1854 by Portland businessman Henry Martyn Payson, the firm originally specialized in financing public water companies, and became nationally known as an underwriter of America’s growing infrastructure.
Since that time, our role has evolved to meet the changing needs of the clients we serve. Today, we focus solely on fiduciary and investment advisory services and are proud to say that families and businesses have entrusted us with assets of over $2 billion. Our steadfast commitment to the judicious stewardship of our clients’ assets remains unchanged.
