Our History

Theodore and James Roosevelt

1971

Roosevelt Investments traces its roots back to 1971, when President Theodore Roosevelt’s cousin, P. James Roosevelt, started the investment firm P. James Roosevelt, Inc., focused on endowments and high-net-worth individuals. P. James Roosevelt’s earliest clients included several members of the Roosevelt family, Youngs Memorial Cemetery, where Teddy Roosevelt is buried, as well as the Theodore Roosevelt Association*

1993

In 1993, the firm changed its name to The Roosevelt Investment Group, Inc., and to this day we still embody the founding Roosevelt values of entrepreneurship, honesty, integrity, and leadership.

P. James Roosevelt believed these values were key to building a successful investment advisory firm. Given our years of successfully serving clients, Roosevelt Investments is proof he was right.
