Meet Tom Carroll

Tom independently founded Provident Financial Group in 2009 after working the corporate sector as a broker. He began to focus on SRI (Socially Responsible Impact) investing when his clients began asking whether it was possible to pursue their investment objectives without violating their principles.

Tom’s goal is to help clients invest in companies that reflect their values. Developing ways to use their capital to reinvest in their local communities as well as sustainable global organizations.

Provident Financial Group is a certified Green business by the City of Ventura.
