Brown Advisory is an investment advisory firm founded in 1993 as an affiliate of Alex. Brown & Sons, a premier specialty investment bank founded in 1800. In 1998, the current management and investment team led a buyout to establish Brown Advisory as a private, independent investment advisory firm.

Since our inception, our mission has remained the same: to build an extraordinary investment firm, to always put our clients first, and to deliver first-class investment performance, thoughtful and creative strategic advice, and the highest level of client service. Our firm’s success and that of its colleagues depends entirely on effectively fulfilling this client-centric mission.

As of December 31, 2018, the firm had approximately $66.3 billion* in client assets, with clients in all 50 U.S. states and 37 countries worldwide. We are a firm of approximately 680 full-time colleagues – each with an equity interest – with locations in Austin, TX; Baltimore, MD; Boston, MA; Chapel Hill, NC; London, U.K.; New York, NY; Wilmington, DE; Charlottesville, VA; Norfolk, VA; Richmond, VA; and Washington, D.C. We also benefit from the contributions of an outstanding group of outside directors who share our commitment to embracing new and disruptive ideas and viewpoints.
