For the second straight year, the Atlanta Business Chronicle has named Gainesville-based Willis Investment Counsel — the only firm outside of metro Atlanta — to its list of Atlanta’s Top 25 Largest Money Managers.
The Business Chronicle bases its Money Manager rankings on the amount of assets under management.
“It is an honor to be included on this list of respected money management firms,” said Bob Willis, the firm’s CEO and chief investment officer. “This is a testament to our talented team and our clients who put their trust in us.”
Founded in 1979, Willis Investment Counsel is one of the largest independent investment management firms north of metro Atlanta with assets of more than $2 billion. The firm manages portfolios for institutional and private wealth clients.
