The two largest investment advisory firms focused on managing investments for public entities across the state of Ohio, Meeder Investment Management (Meeder) and United American Capital Corporation (UACC), have joined forces with UACC becoming part of the Meeder organization. This is great news for clients of both firms as this partnership combines the expertise of two well-respected organizations, along with a wider range of investment solutions, greater depth of resources, and a continued commitment to excellent service.
I have tremendous respect for what Dennis Yacobozzi and his team have accomplished since UACC was founded in 1991, said Bob Meeder, President and CEO of Meeder Investment Management. My team and I are pleased that UACC will be joining forces with our firm as I do believe we are better together.
After 27 years of investing public funds and growing the business to over $5 billion in assets under management, combining resources with another firm similar to ours was the most effective option in terms of future growth, said Dennis Yacobozzi, President and CEO of UACC. After an extensive due diligence process, Meeder was the best choice.
The combined businesses will:
- Provide clients with over 70 years of investment management experience
- Form one of the largest managers of public funds in the United States
- Manage and advise over $23 billion of public funds
Bob Meeder added, The UACC team has done an exemplary job in prudently managing their clients assets. We feel very fortunate to add their experience to our team and look forward to serving our expanded client base.
Bruml Capital Corporation served as financial advisor to UACC.
