Our History

JLB & Associates Inc Investment Counseling

Registered Investment Advisory Firm in Michigan

After serving as Director of Investment Research in the Trust Division at the National Bank of Detroit, James L. Bashaw founded JLB & Associates, Inc. in 1983. Our company is a Registered Investment Advisory firm under the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Our firm grows primarily through client referrals instead of utilizing any marketing. This typically results in long-standing client relationships and has enabled us to grow the number of clients we serve from five relationships in 1983 to over two-hundred ninety-seven relationships today.

Our Clients

We manage accounts for individuals, corporations, and pension/profit-sharing plans. Our firm currently manages over $719 million in client assets.  Today, as it was in 1983, our goal remains to provide superior investment performance and service to our valued clients.
