In January 1988, Eddie Welch and John Hornsby launched Welch Hornsby. They had both been partners in a regional brokerage firm, and they discovered a shared philosophy: The interest of the client should never be compromised. That founding mission has held true throughout the years, and through growth and change, Welch Hornsby aspires to be independent, objective, and committed to building and preserving our clients’ wealth.
Welch Hornsby & Welch founded with the desire to deliver financial services differently – to align our interests with those of our clients.
Through hard work, the value proposition of independent advice and the generous endorsements of our clients, Welch Hornsby & Welch exceeds $1 billion in assets under advisement.
Footprint expansion began with the opening of office in Birmingham, AL. Charlotte, NC will follow in 2014.
Employees first step forward to become shareholders. Others will follow in years to come.
