PFM opened its first office in Philadelphia in 1975 with a staff of five. From the very beginning, Public Financial Management, Inc. had a distinct advantage over the competition: we understood the need for a financial services firm exclusively for the benefit of government and not-for-profit clients. Thanks to an unwavering commitment to outstanding service and serving the client’s interest above all else, PFM has grown into one of the nation’s leading independent municipal finance advisors.
Today, PFM currently employs more than 650 professionals serving a broad base of clients from locations in every region of the country. The firm is well respected for providing clients with independent advisory services free of conflicts in their dealings with the capital markets. Public Financial Management, Inc. is consistently among the top-ranked independent financial advisory firms in the nation in almost every major category, according to Thomson-Reuters.
PFM also provides best practice strategic consulting and pension advisory consulting services.
