Sam Bain founded Bainco International Investors in 1987 on the premise that significant assets demand attentive management. He distinguished Bainco as a wealth management firm focused on holistic and objective asset management at a time when transaction-based investing was the norm. Sam offered a customized investment management approach along with an exceptional commitment to client service. He believes that clients are best served by being the center of a collaborative team whereby Bainco assumes the lead role of trusted financial advisor.
