Together, our leadership team has worked on projects for 15 years. We’re a dynamic cycle-proven team that’s successfully invested through multiple interest rate, market and industry environments.

Our History

Seminole’s consistent returns and relationship-focus are grounded in the investment principles of its founder, Bob Banks. For over 30 years, Mr. Banks powered the success of the Midland Companies where he managed assets on behalf of leading pension funds. During his tenure, to include the title of Owner and CEO, Mr. Banks closed over 2,500 real estate investments and consistently generated above-market returns. In 1999, Mr. Banks successfully sold the Midland Companies to a larger public entity and subsequently retired in 2003. Following his retirement, the funds’ performance began to suffer and, consequently, in 2008 the pension funds asked Mr. Banks if he would consider exiting retirement to resume fund management utilizing his relationship-focused approach. With a loyalty to his investors, and the goal of financing Renewable Energy and Real Estate projects, Mr. Banks formed Seminole Financial Services.

We are proud of our past and energized by the future. Contact us to learn how we can help you build a brighter tomorrow.
