History

In 1890, thirteen years before the New York Stock Exchange was where it stands now, John F. Moors and Charles Cabot established a small investment firm in Boston’s financial district.

Its mission then: to handle the personal investments of their families and their friends.  Through 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.

Simply speaking, we see value in time.


That doesn’t mean we’re big. It just means we’re good at what we do— understanding wealth management for 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.

Our message here isn’t just about longevity. It’s also about the experience, stability, and wisdom those years brings to each client relationship.
