Letter From Mike Schroeder

Wealth management is all about preparing yourself for the future, making plans today so that your tomorrow will be brighter.

As the legendary Warren Buffett likes to say, "Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago."

In a way, Baird's Private Wealth Management division is all about planting trees. This spring, we also helped to build a stronger future for all of us by establishing the Baird Professorship in Finance, an endowed faculty position at the Wisconsin School of Business. Since 2015, we have been collaborating with WSB to develop a course of study that prepares undergraduate business students for a career in the field of wealth management.

This new position reaffirms Baird's commitment to developing the next generation of exceptional advisors. We see it as an investment in the education of future talent who will lead the wealth management industry for years to come.

It's just another way we're keeping our eyes on the future, for not just the next generation but the one after that. Let us know if we can help you plant a tree for your family.
