Terry L. Norris

CLU, ChFC, CFP® – President & Founder

Terry has spent the last thirty three years in the financial services industry. He attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia and graduated from Campbell University in 1973 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry.

Soon after college graduation, he entered the insurance business providing personal lines of coverage to individuals and small businesses in Eastern North Carolina. A successful sales career led to several positions in agency management in Fayetteville, NC, Greensboro, NC and Columbia, SC. In 1982, he moved to Greenville, SC to serve as the Career Division Marketing Director for Liberty Life Insurance Company.

In 1984, he decided to return to the one-on-one relationship building of his early career. Terry saw the need for a financial services firm in the upstate that offered the convenience and personal relationships of a hometown advisor with the professional and technical abilities of larger firms. This conviction led to the founding of Norris Financial Group, LLC. Separately, Terry is a managing executive of Royal Alliance Associates, Inc and holds Series 7, 24, 51, and 63 registrations. In 2001, Norris Financial Group, LLC registered with the State of South Carolina as an independent Registered Investment Advisor.

Mr. Norris is active in both professional and civic affairs. He is a long term member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and The Society for Financial Professionals. On a more local level, Mr. Norris is a member of the Greenville Estate Planning Council and Aldersgate United Methodist Church. He also is a past president of the North Greenville Rotary Club.

Mr. Norris has obtained three different professional designations. He received his CLU (Chartered Life Underwriter) designation in 1983 and ChFC (Chartered Financial Consultant) designation from the American College in 1985. In 2006, Mr. Norris received his CFP® (Certified Financial Planner) designation from the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards.

“It has been my great pleasure and privilege to spend my entire career in the financial services arena. I have had the opportunity to work directly with individuals, businesses and foundations to enhance and aid their financial decision making efforts. I appreciate those whom I have worked with.” -Terry L. Norris
