Welcome to Wulff, Hansen & Co.

Our Public Finance Group is very active in the California
municipal bond market, helping cities, counties, and a wide variety of
public agencies with their financing and advisory needs. Many of our
new issues come from smaller communities which, while not household names
Los Angeles, issue bonds which can offer excellent value to investors.
Wulff, Hansen & Co. was founded in 1931 by an economist (Franklin
Wulff) and a mathematician (William Hansen) who worked as securities
analysts for what was then San Francisco's dominant financial institution,
the Bank of America.
When they founded Wulff, Hansen & Co., America's markets were mired
in gloom, doom, and depression. These two men believed that the
collapse in stock prices,
which began with the Crash of 1929, had gone too far. They believed in
America and in California and were convinced that the fundamental
strengths of this
country would eventually bring an industrial recovery and create
for investors. Their vision was correct, and many of the families who came
our clients through two and three generations. By
an uncommon level of personalized service, the firm has prospered for more
than three-quarters of a century.
Today, the company remains employee-owned and our
the vision and optimism on which the firm was founded while strictly adhering
values which have served both our clients and ourselves for all these years.
