For almost 200 years, we have focused on building strong relationships supported by a foundation of trust and performance. With a history of strength and stability, an ability to execute, and a culture of service and collaboration, we continue to deliver on our mission of offering the highest standard of success in financial relationships.


Our pillars of stability support your relationship with us:


  • Penn Mutual provides stability: Janney has operated for more than 40 years as a wholly-owned, independently operated subsidiary of The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company, a Fortune 1000 company.
  • Privately owned — we focus on you: Our long-term relationship with you is our primary focus, not managing quarterly earnings expectations, reacting to public pressures, or offering clients proprietary investment products.
  • Consistent financial results support your goals: We have reported steady and stable earnings with a record of quarterly profitability that goes back over 140 quarters.
  • Innovation enhances your experience: Our capital strength allows for investment in capabilities and services to enhance the client and financial advisor experience.


Our Values

In all relationships, we operate from the following clear core values that foster trust, respect, and accountability.

  • Deliver with integrity
  • Drive for results
  • Keep people at the center
  • Exceed expectations

Our commitment to our values is ingrained in our culture. At Janney, we live our values every day.

This is who we are and what we do to meet our goal of providing the highest standard of success in financial relationships.


Our Parent Company

Janney and our parent company, The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company, share a partnership more than 40 years strong.

Penn Mutual's success depends on strong, lasting relationships through personal care and attention, and building our strong capital base and balance sheet through a low-risk management style and conservative business model.

Penn Mutual’s ongoing financial strength and support are important contributors to Janney’s solid foundation and financial stability.

“Janney’s strong financial performance is a testament to their unwavering commitment to excellence. They continue to serve as a source of pride for our organization, demonstrating resiliency and agility to navigate a competitive business landscape.” - David O’Malley, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company
