Portland Business Journal Ranks Ferguson Wellman in Top Ten of Money Managers List


Ferguson Wellman Capital Management and West Bearing Investments were recently named by Portland Business Journal to their Oregon and S.W. Washington Money Management Firms list, ranked at seven out of 50 companies.

The publication constructed the list by surveying over 50 money management firms and then ranked them according to assets under management in Oregon and S.W. Washington as of May 31, 2019. While Ferguson Wellman and West Bearing manage over $5.5 billion in total, the ranking was exclusively related to Oregon and S.W. Washington assets.

“Though it is flattering to be listed among the largest investment advisors in the region, more significantly, such occasions afford us the opportunity to humbly reflect on the privilege our clients have given us by entrusting us with the management of their assets,” said George Hosfield, CFA, director and chief investment officer.
