Waddell & Reed

Our History

In 1937, when Cameron Reed joined Chauncey Waddell to form one of the first mutual fund and financial planning complexes in the country, they emerged as pioneers in their industry. Starting with less than $125,000 in assets under management and offering a mere two mutual funds, Waddell & Reed has since grown to greater than $90 billion in assets under management and more than 80 mutual funds.

As Waddell & Reed has grown, so, too, has our commitment to personal financial planning. Today, more than 1,700 financial advisors in over 400 registered offices across the country offer our clients a diverse range of investment and insurance products to help them meet their specific financial planning needs.

The cornerstone of Waddell & Reed since its inception, our investment management and financial planning priorities are born from an organization with the history, the expertise and the resources to help our clients get to where they want to go in life.
