Letter From Mike Schroeder

If you've been paying attention to recent communications or advertising from Baird, you probably know 2019 is our 100th year as a firm.

We've marked this milestone in many ways over the past 10 months. And we've spent more than a little time reflecting on the amazing growth and success we've achieved over the last century – all with the very clear understanding that none of it would have been possible without clients like you.

Your hopes and plans for the future have always been our purpose. When we've grown, it's been in markets and businesses where you wanted us to be and where we knew we could serve you well. Your trust and confidence continue to inspire us to do and be our best. And, because we're employee-owned, we know our success will always depend on yours.

That's what we've been celebrating – this year and every year since our founding – the idea that clients come first. It's a philosophy that's served Baird very well for a century and, as we look forward to the future, we know it will continue to drive all we do – for you, for each other and in the communities we share.

On behalf of all of us at Baird Private Wealth Management, thank you for the opportunities you give us every day.
