Have a client looking to consolidate with either me or Brown Brothers Hariman.  Never bumped into them.  Certainly not in this local market.  Looking at their website, it appears they are similar to Goldman in that they use in-house proprietary managers only.  But not sure.  Anybody able to offer any specific advice on competing against them?

One I idea I have is to see if I can use one of their better managers via dual contract.  Allow the client to have the cache of having some assets with them, yet still keep me, stay diversified with more than one shop, etc.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Well, no replies after 3 days, but I'm most pleased with the fact that nobody lambasted me over the typo in the subject line.  I've been very disappointed in the (apparent to me) lack of cynical, jaded, etc, rhetoric on this board;   but that has been offset by what I perceive as a dramatic reduction in participation on the board in general.  

P.S. Note:   Registered Rep editor:  Your monitoring and sporadic commenting is not a positive.  It's a negative.  Folks like this avenue to connect, vent, share, etc.  And the feeling was that it was "our" venue.   The last 6 ish months or so have been weak at best.  Please turn the forum back over to the users.  And this is feedback from somebody who never "posted" (only "read" for the last 7 years) until now.

P.S.  Million dollar producer feedback;  not to flaunt;   merely to offer that this venue offers value to a community and the value has been reduced in the last year:   This venue is about 10% of it's value in terms of searchable content and "reach" from two years ago.   Registered Rep:  you have a market:  take advantage of it.

Sorry no one came to your aid. I would say few if anyone has experience with BBH. I know I don't.

As for this website, I think the people running this forum are part of the 11 let go about 6 months ago. hmm what a coincidence -

George H Bush father was a partner.. not much known about them.. lots of conspiracy theory..

They seem to have private wealth as well as some MFs...

more importantly...why does it matter... sell you.. don't crap on someone else to get a client..
