Truist Financial’s corporate and investment banking businesses, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey and BB&T Capital Markets, integrated and are now doing business as Truist Securities.
“Truist Securities combines the strengths of both heritage firms to bring clients a greater range of capabilities and expertise to support their objectives,” John Gregg, chairman and CEO of Truist Securities, said. “Additionally, as part of Truist Financial Corporation, our broad resources, financial strength and commitment to innovation enhance our ability to serve as lead advisor to growth-oriented companies and institutional investors.”
Gregg noted that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the broker-dealer integration was completed substantially on a virtual basis, which the company believes is among the first of its kind in the industry.
Truist Securities’ capital markets and investment banking platform includes strategic advisory, mergers and acquisition, and capital markets capabilities for corporate and institutional clients, including sales, trading and research services in both fixed income and equity. The firm also provides corporate finance, asset finance, risk management, liquidity and treasury management solutions.
“We’ve built a culture firmly focused on placing our clients’ needs and goals at the core of everything we do,” Gregg said. “In this challenging environment, growth-oriented companies are seeking a stable, well-capitalized partner who delivers successful outcomes. Although our name is new to the industry, our team and approach to the business are not. We will continue to provide our clients with the strategic counsel they have come to expect from us, along with a proven ability to execute.”
Headquartered in Atlanta, Truist Securities encompasses more than 1,400 teammates in offices located across the U.S.
