Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Cary Street Partners, LLC , a leading wealth management and investment banking firm, announced today it will acquire The Breckenridge Group, Inc., a privately held Atlanta, Georgia-based investment banking firm, subject to regulatory approval.
The Breckenridge Group, Inc. provides investment banking services to public and private middle-market businesses including mergers and acquisitions, capital raising advisory services, private placements of debt and equity and divestitures. Since its inception in 1987, The Breckenridge Group, Inc. has completed financial advisory assignments representing more than $25 billion in transaction value and has built a solid reputation as one of the leading financial advisory firms in the Atlanta financial community.
“We’re excited to join forces with an established financial services firm that has the infrastructure and vision to grow in our region,” said Larry C. Williams, Managing Director with The Breckenridge Group, Inc. “We’re confident that we will continue to thrive and serve our clients well as part of the Cary Street team.”
The acquisition of The Breckenridge Group, Inc. is in keeping with Cary Street Partners’ broader strategy to acquire quality wealth management and investment banking firms in attractive markets. This transaction marks the second for Cary Street Partners within the last 12 months and establishes the firm as one of the largest investment banking teams among boutique firms in the Southeast. The firm acquired Texas-based RiverStone Wealth Management in December 2013 adding more than $400 million in client assets and annual revenue of $5.4 million to its financial portfolio. Cary Street Partners targets geographic markets in the southeastern crescent from Virginia through Texas.
The firm currently has 11 locations in five states including: Georgia (Atlanta), North Carolina (Charlotte, Greensboro), Tennessee (Johnson City), Texas (Austin, San Antonio) and Virginia (Abingdon, Blacksburg, Richmond, Wytheville and Fredericksburg).
