Large Producers Shift to First Republic

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

To provide context for how large the producers acquired by First Republic are, here is the short list of recent hires: a seven-person team was hired with a record of $4.7 million of fees and commissions last year and two wealth management groups out of California who collectively generated $6.7 million, both signed in January. Most recently a $5.5 million team out of New York was hired prior to the President’s Day weekend.

The success is in the numbers. First Republic, which was added to the S&P 500 index late last year, generated 14.8% of its revenue for 2018 from wealth management, up from 13.6% in 2017.

So what will the future hold for First Republic? Only time will tell.

We just wanted to say thanks for your work in helping us get back some of the money we lost. We are not by any means rich, but we have saved some money and we have done so through a tight-fisted approach to most everything we do. So losing a significant chunk of money hurt…especially at a time when everyone else was growing their accounts. We really appreciate the work you did.
