“The strategic and cultural fit between Raymond James and TriState has been continually reinforced as our teams have worked toward this point over the last few months,” Raymond James Chairman and CEO Paul Reilly says in a statement. “Our collective focus on client-first values and a long-term horizon are unique and a true differentiator for our firms. I’m thrilled to officially welcome TriState Capital to the Raymond James family and look forward to growing together.”
TriState and its subsidiary, asset management franchise Chartwell Investment Partners, will continue to operate under their respective brands, according to a news release. Chair Jim Getz, TriState CEO Brian Fetterolf and Chartwell CEO Tim Riddle will retain their roles, while 350 employees are expected to remain with the company at its existing offices.
“We at TriState Capital are as excited about our future as we have ever been, and we are excited about our opportunity to partner with Raymond James who truly values what we have built and what we have left to achieve,” Getz states in the release. “Remaining as a separately chartered bank, TriState Capital Bank will continue serving our clients with premier private banking, commercial lending and treasury management solutions.”
