New York Private Bank & Trust (NYPB&T) has made a minority investment in multi-asset class investment management and advisory firm Gerber | Taylor Capital Advisors.

The deal, whose financial details are unknown, was carried out through Emigrant Partners, a subsidiary of NYPB&T.

Founded in 1990, Gerber Taylor specialises in investment management and investment advisory services.

The firm has approximately $6.3bn in assets under management and $7.5bn in assets under advisement.

The investment will be used to support succession planning among the partners of Gerber Taylor.

In addition, the company will leverage NYPB&T’s resources and services.

Emigrant Partners president and CEO Karl Heckenberg said: “We are beyond thrilled to welcome Gerber Taylor to the Emigrant Partners family. Gerber Taylor’s impressive management team has built and scaled a sophisticated investment offering that is second to none in the industry.”

Gerber Taylor co-founder and CEO Charles Gerber said: “We are truly excited and honored to associate with Karl and Emigrant Partners, as we will significantly benefit from their capital support, global network and vast resources. The partnership will enable us to support our client mission and perpetuate a multi-generational firm for many years to come.”

In April last year, Emigrant Partners bought a minority stake in Stratos Wealth, a family of investment advisory businesses.

In May last year, Emigrant Partners made a minority investment in San Francisco-based independent RIA Parallel Advisors.
