Allegheny was established in 1976 by James J. Browne, CFP®, and James D. Hohman, CFP®, as a fee-based financial planning firm. These two men saw a need in the marketplace to provide objective, comprehensive advice not tied to specific products. For over 40 years, this has been a key piece to the Allegheny culture and ethic.
In 1977, Allegheny Investments was established as a broker/dealer division to broaden the access to products and services and provide an avenue for like-minded financial professionals to team with Allegheny Financial Group and collaborate on providing service independent of products. In the following years, Allegheny added a formal Investment Research group; the team of financial planning analysts was broadened to help with the work load; we established the Pittsburgh chapter of the predecessor organization to the Financial Planning Association; and many more objective, comprehensive advisors joined the team.
