Financial Council, Inc.


The roots of Financial Council, Inc. (FCI) date back to 1957, when Howard Leeb (Bud) opened and ran his first regional office for an independent investing firm. Insisting on the win/win, Bud embodied the true spirit of the independent advisor community, refusing to be bound to a single product. Focusing on advice-driven planning, he forged ahead laying the groundwork for the modern day FCI.

Together with his son Bill they founded FCI, basing their company upon the core belief that education is the key to investor success. FCI has become a fixture at many of central Maryland's leading organizations, delivering customized, on-site investor education programs. 

Bill, now president of FCI, has carefully mentored an honest, caring staff of well-tenured advisors and support personnel (see Our Team). With an average of 15 years' experience, the FCI team members are dedicated to improving the experience of those who have placed their faith in us.
