About AMS


Welcome to American Municipal Securities, Inc.

In 1980, we founded a firm built on handshakes and personal relationships.

Our goal was to take the guesswork out of investing, especially retirement planning, so our clients could realize the security of a steady, long-term income stream.

Today, we are recognized as an industry leader in the sale of municipal bonds to individual investors, with a full-service, fixed income trading desk, and complete range of investment offerings.

Our success-and the success of our clients-is thanks to our straightforward approach. We are honest in our dealings and conservative in our methodology, affording us the privilege of serving generations of families we now consider friends.

When you partner with us, a dedicated advisor will design a balanced portfolio with your unique goals in mind, with your insight and input driving every decision. As markets, tax codes, or even your personal objectives change, the resources and expertise of our entire team will be there to guide you through.

We look forward to serving you.

J. Cooper Petagna, Jr.
