Our History

Our History

In 1993, Bob and Ged Parsons formed Parsons Capital Management after years of experience in the brokerage and investment advisory industries. Since then, they have grown the firm with experienced professionals who share their desire to provide a high level of customer service to all clients.

In subsequent years, Peter Hunt, Edwin G. Fischer Jr., David von Hemert, Ruth and John Mullen, John Trevor IV, C. Bateman Parsons and Joan Caine joined the firm as Managing Directors. In 2021 the firm reorganized with operations overseen by an executive committee led by John Mullen, President, John Trevor IV, Secretary and C. Bateman Parsons, Treasurer.

Most recently in 2023, Gregory J. Lavine joined the firm as Director of Fixed Income. Together, these professionals continue to provide resources for our clients and strengthen the collaborative base for research and investment strategy.

Over the years, the firm has maintained strong roots in the Rhode Island community while expanding beyond our region to meet the needs of our clients. In addition to our main office in Providence, RI, we have offices in Hobe Sound, FL and Denver, CO.
