Founded in Memphis in 1969, the Duncan-Williams name is synonymous with character. Relationships are what we are about. For over 40 years the personal approach of our family owned brokerage firm has attracted a uniquely diverse, steadfastly loyal foundation of institutional brokers and their institutional clients. Our close ties to the community and the philanthropic heartbeat of our brokers combines synergies to produce an ambiance that is rare in today’s business world.
Duncan-Williams has helped private and public entities raise the capital they need for more than 40 years. Today, it is more important than ever to have the right firm guide you through the challenges and opportunities of an uncertain and constantly changing marketplace. As a firm with a national presence, we can help you create value for shareholders, taxpayers and other constituencies through the broad distribution of private equity, private debt, and public debt. Yet, we are small enough to give your organization a level of personal attention and advice from senior bankers that few Wall Street investment banks can match.
