About Us

Your Trusted Experts

In 1890, 13 years before the NYSE stands where it does now, John F. Moors & Charles Cabot established a small investment firm in Boston's financial district.  Its mission then: handle the personal investments of the founders and their friends.  Over time, that mission has expanded.  Today, Moors & Cabot manages the assets of thousands of investors from our Boston headquarters and branch offices throughout the country.

That doesn't mean we're big, just good at what we do - understanding and managing the wealth of our clients.  We've done it through two world wars; the market crashes of 1907, 1929, and 1987; countless panics; numerous recessions; the dotcom bubble; the housing bubble; and the daily ups and downs of an ever-changing financial landscape.

Through it all, Moors & Cabot has prevailed.  And, more importantly, so have our clients.
