Agility and Transformation

Whenever new opportunities beckon, BBH reinvents itself. The firm stands on a structure of governance that supports an entrepreneurial spirit, recognizes and acts on new possibilities, and manages the associated risks in any new business.

To survive and prosper through the nineteenth century, the founding Browns had to be resilient, adaptive, and reinvent themselves in response to markets repeatedly reshaped by financial crisis.


In the years after World War II, a series of forces combined to challenge some of BBH’s major businesses. But the ability to adapt to serve existing and new clients is hardwired into the bank’s DNA.
