Our Firm

Leaders in the Field

CSG Advisors Incorporated is a national, full service, independent financial advisor that assists public finance clients in the design, financing and implementation of affordable housing, urban redevelopment and economic development initiatives. The firm’s origins trace back to the formation in 1979 of Gressel Gressel & Slater as the first firm dedicated exclusively to providing financial advisory services to Housing Finance Agencies throughout the United States. CSG Advisors is entirely employee-owned and independent. Employee owners include minorities and women.
