Firm Overview

James M. Connors, Founder & Chairman
1932 - 2020

Our History

 

Founded in 1969, Connors originally focused on publishing research for financial advisors around the country.  The "Connors Report", "Connors In Depth Growth Studies", and "The Connors Option Service" were some of the early research publications produced exclusively for investment advisory firms throughout the United States.

By 1974, after Jim Connors attended the grand opening of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, the focus shifted solely to investment management.  Connors began incorporating the use of options with U.S. equities, making Jim one of the early pioneers of writing call options to lower volatility for clients.  For five decades, our sustained level of quality service, accessibility to our portfolio managers, our performance and commitment to doing what is best for our clients have distinguished us.
