A timeless reputation for uniqueness, built on experience
TRG's foundation was laid back in 1997 with the formation of its flagship investment banking subsidiary D. Livingston Reid & Co. LLC. In 1998, D. Livingston Reid & Co. LLC entered into a formal strategic alliance with the Global Structured Finance Group of HSBC Securities, Inc. and originated over $1.5 billion in principal value debt transactions. Also established in 1998 were DLR Ventures LLC, the firm's business ventures arm, DLR Asset Management LLC, and The D. Livingston Reid Foundation, a public charity with the goal to promote learning among less-privileged children between the ages of 6 and 12 years.
In December 1998, the decision was made to combine all financial subsidiaries into a single surviving entity, The Reid Group LLC, to create, communicate, and build one recognized brand.
