Insight since the 1980s

Our origins go back to 1982 with the establishment of The Q Group, Inc. (TQG) a consulting firm dedicated to serving financial institutions. In 1992, TQG merged into a boutique investment banking company then owned by a regional bank.

Our consulting engagements focused on profitability measurement, systems and operations issues, and strategic planning for community financial institutions. Recognizing that these institutions required more sophisticated management information to compete, we launched our profitability outsourcing service in 1992. It quickly became our signature service.

After our parent company’s second ownership change, 10 of our employees purchased the consulting services division in 2001 and spun-off into The Kafafian Group. We’ve been helping financial institutions succeed ever since.
