Edgar (Ted) G. Ingraham, Principal


Ted founded American Heritage Securities, Inc. and EGI Financial, Inc. in 1992 after spending eleven years working as a Financial Advisor at a major national investment firm.

American Heritage serves clients who prefer basic brokerage services while EGI Financial is a fiduciary providing discretionary money manager services for a fee.

Ted’s investment practice focuses on long-term equity and fixed income strategies to grow and preserve wealth. He brings a long history of investment management and a wealth of experience to his relationships. His clients are primarily individuals, trusts, company profit-sharing or pension plans and retirement plans. In addition to managing and growing the businesses over the years, Ted serves as President and Chief Compliance Officer.

Ted is a member of the Akron area Chamber of Commerce, Past President of the Sales and Marketing Executives of Akron and the Akron Torch Club. A competitive cyclist, Ted is a member and five time past president of the Summit Freewheelers Bicycle Club. Ted lives in Akron with his wife, Karen.
