Ingalls & Snyder and Capital Formation Group Announce New Investment Management Relationship

New York, April 1, 2015. Ingalls & Snyder, LLC, a leading independent investment management firm based in New York City, and Capital Formation Group, Inc., a sophisticated financial planning firm based in Wellesley, Massachusetts, are pleased to announce a new relationship between the two firms. Effective today, Ingalls will serve as the principal investment management sub-advisor for clients of Capital Formation Group, Inc. (“CFG”).

John Williams, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Capital Formation Group, stated that this new agreement enables CFG to bring its clients a deep bench of investment expertise from a well-respected, 90-year old Wall Street firm, including both custom portfolio management and top-down wealth management approaches. The two firms have worked together for several years, he noted, and share a common dedication to excellence in client advice and service.

Robert Case, Chief Executive Officer of Ingalls & Snyder, stated that this agreement will accomplish several valuable goals for Ingalls & Snyder:

  • Ingalls obtains the internal capability to provide wealth management services (with client-specific asset allocation and manager selection recommendations), adding to its existing strengths in custom portfolio management.
  • Ingalls will provide investment advice in its sub-advisory capacity to all of CFG’s current and future wealth management clients.
  • CFG’s Chief Investment Officer, Jason Morad, joins Ingalls as an investment advisor based in Wellesley, MA. Jason will lead the wealth management efforts at Ingalls, in addition to working with the CFG sales team to develop additional new business for both firms.
  • Ingalls obtains a presence in the Boston area, and the platform to add additional advisors in that market.

Mr. Case welcomed the clients of Capital Formation Group to Ingalls & Snyder and expressed confidence that they will be well served.  Mr. Case also expressed excitement about the opportunities for growth that the two firms will share together. Going forward, Ingalls and CFG will continue to work closely in the areas of financial planning and insurance, in addition to investment management.
