Newsmakers in business: Atlanta Business Chronicle names Willis Investment as a Top 25 firm
Bob Willis

The Atlanta Business Chronicle has named Willis Investment Counsel to its list of Atlanta’s Top 25 Money Managers.

The business publication’s rankings were based on the amount of assets under management. The Gainesville-based firm was the only firm outside of metro Atlanta to make the list.

“The Atlanta Business Chronicle is a respected business publication in the Atlanta region, and earning a place in its top 25 list is gratifying for our team,” said Bob Willis, CEO and chief investment officer of Willis Investment Counsel.

This is the second significant recognition for Willis Investment Counsel in 2016. The Financial Times of London recently named the firm as one of the United States’ top 300 investment advisory firms for the second straight year.

Founded in 1979, Willis Investment Counsel is one of the largest independent investment management firms north of metro Atlanta. The firm manages portfolios for institutional and private wealth clients.
