Waddell & Reed

Our History

In 1937, Cameron Reed joined Chauncey Waddell to form one of the first mutual fund and financial planning complexes in the country. A pioneer in the industry, Waddell & Reed launched with less than $125,000 in assets under management and just two mutual funds. The firm has since grown to more than $135 billion in assets under management and more than 80 mutual funds.

As Waddell & Reed has grown, so has our commitment to personal financial planning. Today, nearly 1,800 financial advisors in more than 400 registered offices across the country offer clients a diverse range of investment and insurance products to help them meet their financial planning needs.

Our cornerstone -- proven, professional investment management and customized financial planning services – is backed by the history, expertise and resources to help clients get to where they want to go in life.
