GREENWICH, CT--(Marketwire - Jan 10, 2012) - Fieldpoint Private, the fast-growing private bank & wealth advisory firm serving ultra high net worth families and institutions, announced that it has expanded into new offices in Manhattan, taking occupancy of the 18th floor of 400 Park Avenue.

The move marks the firm's second expansion in New York, and signals its emergence as a significant force in the country's largest and wealthiest city. In May 2011, Fieldpoint Private announced its acquisition of Analytic Asset Management, a Manhattan-based Registered Investment Advisor with $275 million in assets under management.

"We've been honored with a series of new and very large relationships from private clients and institutions in the past six months alone, so you can imagine how quickly we were working on new space," said Robert S. Matthews, Fieldpoint Private's President and CEO. "This expansion enables us to offer a full private banking experience right in the middle of one of America's most dynamic neighborhoods, and to house a significant portion of our growing team of advisors where they can be close to many of our best Members."

The young firm has attracted attention for its prominent founders -- which include four retired Chairmen of Merrill Lynch & Co. and UBS Americas -- but also for its business model, which combines private banking with open architecture and independent investment advice, performance reporting across clients' entire financial pictures, and comprehensive planning. John L. "Launny" Steffens, former Chairman of the US Private Client Group of Merrill Lynch & Co. and one of Fieldpoint Private's Founders, called the expansion one of most significant steps yet in the firm's early history. "It says a lot about why we started Fieldpoint Private -- to do the business the right way, and to always stay close to our Members," Steffens said.

Concurrent with the opening of the new office, Analytic Asset Management has changed its name to Fieldpoint Private Advisors, Inc. and is among the occupants of the new facilities. The group, led by principals Richard T. Arkwright, Taylor T. Gray, and Jill Arkwright Harvey, CFA®, provides investment advisory services to significant foundations, endowments and private families.
