History

Salem Investment Counselors was founded in 1979 to provide financial management and guidance to a prominent North Carolina family.

From the beginning, Salem's goal was to help individuals and families realize their financial goals through a prosperous financial partnership.  Since opening its doors to the general public in 1982, Salem has grown to over $1.36B in assets under management.

While many investment strategies have come and gone over the past 40 years, Salem has remained firm in its fiduciary duty: that the interests of our clients are paramount and must be served without conflict.  To accomplish this goal, Salem's advisors serve as investment managers who act in our clients’ best interests, and as trustworthy and reliable partners dedicated to meet each client's specific goals.  Today, Salem continues to expand its physical presence, launching a Durham office in 2018, and maintaining the professional staff and technology to serve our clients nationwide.
