Stillwater Asset Management

SAM is headquartered in Stillwater, Minnesota

Stillwater is considered the birthplace of Minnesota. In 1848 the first territorial convention began the process of making Minnesota a State. With history having been made just a few blocks from our current office, SAM continues that tradition in being at the forefront of new opportunities and strong frontier values which have earned us the trust and respect of our investors and key industry partners. From this base we have established access to a broad deal flow from local, regional and big banks to our network of countrywide brokers.
