 Lazard’s largest office is at 30 Rockefeller Plaza,New York CityNY

Lazard: is a premier global financial advisory and asset management firm that engages in investment bankingasset management, and other financial services primarily with institutional clients.

Lazard was founded in 1848 and has its global headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Center in the Midtown Manhattan area of New York City. It operates from 41 cities across 26 countries in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Central and South America. The firm provides advice on mergers and acquisitions, strategic matters, restructuring and capital structure, capital raising and corporate finance, as well as asset management services to corporations, partnerships, institutions, governments and individuals. 

Early years On July 12, 1848, three French brothers, Alexandre, Lazare, and Simon Lazard, founded Lazard Frères & Co. as a dry goods merchant store in New OrleansLouisiana. By 1851, Simon and two more brothers, Maurice and Elie, had all moved to San Francisco, California, while Alexandre moved to New York. Lazard Frères began to serve miners engaged in the California Gold Rush, and soon expanded into banking and foreign exchange.

In 1854, Alexandre Lazard moved to Paris, France, where he opened an office to complement the U.S. business. The firm began advising the French government on gold buying. In 1870 the firm continued to expand its international operations, opening an office in London.

The three houses of Lazard – In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the firm evolved into three “Houses of Lazard” in the United States, France, and England, separately managed but allied. The Lazard partners advised clients on financial matters and built a cross-border network of high-level relationships in business and government. Noted financial advisor George Blumenthal (banker)rose to prominence as the head of the U.S. branch of Lazard Frères and was a partner of Lazard Frères in France.

In the economic boom following World War II, the American operations of Lazard expanded significantly under the leadership of the financier André Meyer. Meyer and Lazard partner Felix Rohatyn have been credited with virtually inventing the modern M&A market. In 1953 Lazard Investors Ltd began an asset management business in London, which is the origin of today’s Lazard Asset Management

In 1977 as the health of Meyer began to deteriorate, the firm came to be controlled by Michel David-Weill. Under his leadership, the three houses of Lazard were formally united in 2000 as Lazard LLC.

In 2002 David-Weill hired Bruce Wasserstein to be CEO. In 2005 Lazard became a public company, with nearly two-third of its shares owned by current and former employees. Wasserstein became its first Chairman and CEO. In connection with the IPO, Lazard spun off its broker-dealer business, Lazard Capital Markets.

Following Wasserstein’s sudden death in 2009, Lazard’s Board of Directors elected Kenneth M. Jacobs Chairman and CEO! 

Lazard’s asset management business provides investment management and financial advisory services to institutional clients, financial intermediaries, private clients, and investment vehicles around the world. The goal of Lazard’s asset management business is to produce superior risk-adjusted investment returns and provide customized investment solutions for clients. The firm manages assets on behalf of institutional (corporationslabor unions, public pension fundsendowmentsfoundationsinsurance companies, and banks; and through sub-advisory relationships, mutual fund sponsors, broker-dealers and registered advisors) and individual clients (principally family offices and high-net worth individuals). As of December 31, 2013, Lazard lists its Total Assets Under Management as $187bn
