Jeff K. Davis, CFA, managing director of Mercer Capital’s Financial Institutions Group, was quoted in The Tennessean article “Big financial companies increasingly choosing Nashville.”
AllianceBernstein recently announced plans to move its corporate headquarters to Nashville, selecting the city over Charlotte, NC. According to the article, the move will bring more than 1,000 jobs to the market in coming years. These plans follow JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s and UBS’ Nashville expansion in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
“AllianceBernstein has helped shine another light on Nashville and in this instance it is not tourism and not health care related, so a net-net for Nashville as a business center,” said Jeff Davis, a banking analyst in Nashville and managing director at Mercer Capital. “More service providers that specialize, in this case, as asset managers or as broker dealers will start to establish outposts here. That’s good for businesses and opportunities for professionals.”
