Our History

Our roots run deep in Colorado. 


The origin of Colorado Financial Management dates back to 1988 when Mike Sargent registered with the Securities Exchange Commission as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) in Boulder, CO.

In 1999, Mike Sargent retired and new partners Brad Bickham, Chris Lagudis, and Patty Meneley continued the tradition of providing close personal attention, sophisticated financial planning, and the unrelenting pursuit of excellent investment results as Sargent Bickham Lagudis.

In 2016, SBL merged with Colorado Financial Management, an RIA in Loveland with a long and proud history in Northern Colorado.
