We are far greater together than we are alone.
Impacting the future by living by our mission.

Businesses have the opportunity to enhance the lives of people they encounter, from co-workers to customers to communities all around the world. There is no standard for what that looks like in a business, and there is no definition of what it means to a business. Through First Rate’s commitment to do more than just business, we endeavor to talk about how our co-workers, customers, and communities are creating opportunities for people to dream bigger, live fuller, and love deeper. Journey with us as we take a few steps every day to tell the story of combining the business of First Rate with First Rate’s mission to impact the world for positive change.

  • Businesses can be the lifeblood of the mission a firm operates with. Business can conquer social injustices and give hope to people and communities that dream of opportunity.

    Rob Bethmann General Manager Service Bureau
  • Some journeys take us far from home, some adventures lead us to our destiny.

  • Business and mission aren't two seperate events. Business funds the mission. Business is an integral part of the mission.

BUILDING THE BRIDGE TO

Walk Together

The individual passions of our clients, customers, and co-workers become the passions of First Rate. It is an important part of our mission to foster, support, and be the vehicle to help accomplish the goals of their outreach. It allows us the opportunity to diversify and expand the impact of First Rate as well as connect with each other and create lifelong bonds.

First Rate strives to enhance the value of our communities and our families through charitable contributions and partnerships. By teaming up with other community leaders and extending our circle of influence, we can make a lasting impact on future generations to create a cycle that loves, gives, serves, and enjoys. 

Can you imagine a world where every company operated with the purpose to be stewards to their clients, to impact the world around them, to invest in human capital, and to work for a greater good? Although we cannot solve the world’s problems on our own, we strive to be a driver and part of a bigger solution by building a business to give back to the mission, culture, and country it serves.

FIRST RATE INDIA

While many firms outsource work to India to lower their cost of delivering their product or service, First Rate has a very different motivation for opening an office in India. We believe that providing industry-leading wealth management technology and services goes hand-in-hand with making an impact in our communities. First Rate is serious about our mission to make an impact on our local, national, and international community. Our primary goals for First Rate India are to enhance the value we bring to our customers and make an impact on the community of Hyderabad.
