At GH&A, we’ve seen a lot happen. From receiving impressive honors to incredible growth in AUM, we’re proud of our team for making things happen. Here are just a few updates.
We did it Again!
Garcia Hamilton & Associates is honored to be recognized for the second year in a row by Institutional Investor Magazine (II). In 2014, II awarded us Fixed Income Investment Grade Manager of the Year. In 2015, we were awarded Intermediate-Term Fixed Income Manager of the Year. We are proud of both awards and know that it could not have happened without the hard work from the entire GH&A team.
In the past several years, GH&A’s fixed income AUM has seen tremendous growth. We attribute this to several factors, including strong performance, excellent client service, attractive market opportunities and a renaissance of traditional fixed income investing.
Over the past fifteen months, we hired two new investment professionals with more than 50 years combined investment experience and four client service team members. We will continue to add personnel so the firm always retains the magic that has led to our wonderful growth. This year, we implemented a new auto-reconciliation program (Rex) which adds client capacity, increases reporting speed and minimizes human errors.
Managing Partner Gilbert Garcia is Honored
Mr. Garcia was awarded the Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) Alumni Leadership Award at this year’s SEO Annual Awards Dinner in New York City. SEO has been helping minority, inner-city youth since 1963, and has been providing minority undergraduates with summer internships on Wall Street since 1980. Presenting the award was Michael Osheowitz, SEO Founder, and the Gala Chair was Brian Moynihan. Other honorees that evening included Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and David M. Rubenstein. Mr. Garcia (SEO 1983) has served as a member of the SEO Board of Directors since 1988.

At GH&A, there’s always a lot happening. As Bachman-Turner Overdrive said, “you ain’t seen nothing yet.” We can’t wait to see the next great things all of us “never will forget!”
