Economic surveys and "war loan" data, ca. 1943, from the office of Los Angeles investment counselor A.M. Clifford, one of
the first investment counselors in the United States.
A.M. Clifford was one of the first Amerian businessmen to use the term "investment counselor". He founded his brokerage firm
in Los Angeles in 1911. When one of his wealthy clients asked him to review her $30 million in assets in 1915, Clifford called
himself "an investment counselor and financial analyst." By 1921, Clifford was focusing exclusively on investment counseling
and charging fixed fees for his services.
