Robert W. Baird & Co. Incorporated 100th Anniversary Celebration
June 12 - June 13
Baird, an employee-owned, international wealth management, asset management, investment banking/capital markets and private equity firm, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. To commemorate the milestone, members of Baird’s Executive Committee rang the closing bell on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday, March 4.
Since the firm’s founding in 1919, Baird associates have focused on providing the best financial advice and service to clients and giving back to their communities. This “service to others” has been faithfully followed since firm namesake Robert Wilson Baird led the union of two bond departments that formed the First Wisconsin Company in 1919. Robert W. Baird was also an early advocate of the formation of an industry group focused on self-regulation and became the third chairman of the National Association of Securities Dealers.
Today, Baird has approximately 3,500 associates serving the needs of individual, corporate, institutional and municipal clients through more than 100 offices in the United States, Europe and Asia.
