Aviance Capital Partners is more than just a partnership. The founding partners, Orville D. Ward and James R. Neel, began as a team in 1999 while working in the Naples, Florida office of a prominent New York based, international Investment Bank and Trust Company. The decision was made to move the Naples business in 2002, and in 2009, the name was changed to Aviance Capital Partners – working out of the same building in North Naples since the move in 2002. In 2011, Jack David Brown merged the Naples-based investment firm he started in 2005 with Aviance.
As a private, owner-managed investment management firm, our primary focus is building customized equity and fixed income portfolios for high net-worth individuals with a competitive edge in proprietary portfolio management.
