Code of Ethics

The Investment Advisers Act of 1940 imposes a fiduciary duty on investment advisors. As a fiduciary, Clayton has a duty of utmost good faith to act solely in the best interests of each of our clients. Our clients entrust us with their funds, which in turn places a high standard on our conduct and integrity. Integrity demands honesty and candor, which must not be subordinated to personal gain and advantage.

Clayton Wealth Partners respects the trust and confidence clients place in us and we recognize our responsibility to be competent, objective, fair, diligent and professional in our relationship with our clients. Our fiduciary duty compels all employees to act with the utmost integrity in all of our dealings with the public, fellow professionals and colleagues. This fiduciary duty is the core principle underlying this Code of Ethics and represents the expected basis of all of our dealings with our clients.

Commitment to Community

Randy and Debra Clayton have a decades long commitment to the local community. Clayton Wealth Partners reflects that commitment. Clayton policies encourage all employees to engage in community and volunteer work, and its employees donate hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars a year to various not for profit organizations. Clayton has committed to major donations to local charities, civic organizations and the revitalization of downtown Topeka.

The lot where our building is located is part of the Original Town of the Topeka Township, which was founded on December 6, 1854. The surviving records for our location date as far back as 1860—the year Abraham Lincoln was elected as the sixteenth President of the United States.

By 1880, ordinances overseeing construction were put in place, and suddenly permits were necessary for constructing everything from three-story hotels to backyard chicken coops. The twentieth building permit in the history of Topeka allowed our building to expand up to 25 feet wide and 60 feet deep, which allowed multiple businesses to operate out of the same address. A small merchant's apartment was situated at the rear.

In the fall of 1909, the city issued building permit #14547 to construct a new three-story stone and brick building at this site, while at the same time, the building to the south also underwent a major new construction. The two owners agreed to apply a single brick facade across both structures. While unusual today, the white glazed brick had been the height of fashion at that time, influenced by the design of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Another example can be seen at 5th and Kansas.

In 2008, in the height of the recession, Clayton purchased and moved its operations to historic 716 S. Kansas Ave., now a fixture in the middle of Topeka’s downtown redevelopment. Additionally, Randy and Debra Clayton purchased and renovated 718 S. Kansas Avenue into storefront and luxury apartments. Finally, in 2016, following a fire destroying nearby 720 S. Kansas Avenue, Randy and Debra committed to the construction of a new three-story building, one of the only new construction projects in downtown Topeka in a decade. Like our clients, Clayton is committed to its community.
