Our History

Constantly evolving to meet the data and advisory needs of financial firms.  

Evolution of Our Firm

Greenwich Associates began in 1972 with the vision of Charley Ellis and a small team of 10 Members in Connecticut (US). His big idea: Create a superior professional strategic financial consulting firm, hire the very best people and deliver insightful, unbiased, timely and above all actionable advice to help clients improve business performance.

Knowing that the best advice requires the best information, we have developed our own independent, in-depth market research practice. This year alone, we will interview more than 50,000 highly regarded financial services executives in more than 70 countries.

Today, Greenwich Associates serves:

Our client base includes more than 250 leading banks and fund manager firms, plus the more than 50,000 corporations and institutions who, as participants in our research, are members of the Greenwich Exchange.

Working in six offices on three continents, we meet the wide-ranging needs of our clients by covering every aspect of the global financial services industry—brokerage, fixed income, foreign exchange, derivatives, commodities, insurance and investment banking.  Many of our clients come to us strictly for our proprietary data and content; others rely on us for professional consulting and advisory services that are grounded in our independent market research.
