Granite Springs Asset Management, LLC is a privately held, SEC-registered investment advisor (RIA) that specializes in both fixed income and equity portfolio management and investment strategies. Our strategies are designed to provide tailored investment solutions to a wide array of clients, including high-net-worth individuals, financial advisors, family offices, pension plans, foundations, and other institutional investors.
The investment philosophy at Granite Springs is based on the principal belief: that sound due diligence and diversification lead to superior returns over time.
Granite Springs was founded in May 2009 as a state-registered investment advisory firm. In January 2013, it became a wholly owned subsidiary of R. Seelaus & Company, Inc., a full-service financial firm based in Summit, NJ. The affiliation has been a beneficial one, permitting Granite Springs to function as a separate entity while still benefiting from the strength, stability, and resources of its parent company. The partnership has also allowed R. Seelaus & Co. to extend its business model to fee-based portfolio management, a long-time goal of founder Richard Seelaus.
In April 2017, Granite Springs acquired Sunnymeath Asset Management, a Red Bank, NJ-based Registered Investment Advisor that was founded in 1996 by veteran equity market analyst and portfolio manager James P. O’Mealia. The acquisition allows Granite Springs to offer its clients a diverse set of financial strategies that will serve each client well.
Today, Granite Springs is an SEC-registered investment advisor with over $350 million in assets. Each member of our portfolio management team has over twenty years of experience in their respective fields and is committed to providing our clients with the customized financial solutions and personal touch that only a boutique investment firm can.
Woman Business Enterprise (WBE)
Granite Springs was certified as a WBE in July 2015 by the State of New Jersey by demonstrating that its business is majority “independently owned and managerially controlled” by women (N.J.A.C. 17:46). In September 2017, Granite Springs was granted Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification, processed by the Women President's Educational Organization - NY, a WBENC Regional Partner Organization.
The firm looks forward to continued participation in the minority firm community and to utilizing these designations to better serve the needs of its clients throughout the country, especially those with commitments to meet annual WBE and minority firm participation goals.
R. Seelaus & Company, Inc.
R. Seelaus & Co., Inc. was founded in 1984 by Richard Seelaus. The firm was originally a municipal bond dealer conducting business with the major trust banks of New York and Chicago.

The firm serves individuals, families, public and private companies, non-profit organizations, and institutional investors and has offices in downtown Summit, NJ and Boston, MA.
