William Blair Celebrates New York Expansion

Friday, October 20, 2017

William Blair, a global investment banking and asset management firm, celebrated the expansion of its wealth management and investment banking services with clients in New York City on October 17.

William Blair added two experienced Manhattan-based private wealth teams to its New York office earlier this year. Those additions follow the expansion of the firm's private wealth management group to Atlanta and Boston over the past few years, and an increase in the number of financial advisors in its Chicago headquarters.

The two New York teams collectively have over 80 years of experience in the financial services industry and manage more than $600 million in client assets. The firm's investment banking team has also grown over the last few years, including a staff increase in the New York office to better serve clients.

"William Blair remains focused on providing comprehensive financial services to our clients as we expand our business in key markets," said John Ettelson, president and CEO of William Blair. "William Blair’s independent, partnership culture allows us to be nimble and provide a collaborative environment to share ideas which helps us meet our clients' financial goals."

The firm has been a well-respected provider of private wealth management and investment banking services for 82 years, and for the third year in a row was recently recognized as one of America's top 40 wealth management firms by Barron's* magazine.

William Blair, founded in 1935 in Chicago, is a global provider of financial services with $88.4 billion in client assets as of June 30, 2017.

*Ranked by AUM in accounts of $5 million or more as June 30, 2017.
