William Harris Investors, Inc. (WHI) is a privately owned investment and wealth management firm that serves as the family office for the Irving B. Harris family. Founded in 1976 by Irving B. Harris to manage his own family's capital, WHI today provides investment and wealth management services to four generations of the Harris family.
WHI's overall investment goal is to achieve attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns while protecting capital during volatile markets. We invest in a broad array of strategies, including public and private equities, fixed income, venture capital, hedge funds and real estate. WHI also provides the family a broad range of professional and wealth management services, including financial and estate planning, trust services, cash management, accounting and administrative services, tax preparation, and a variety of philanthropic services. In addition, our affiliate WHI Trust Company, LLC provides trustee and trust administration and other services for Harris family trusts and a select group of other clients.
WHI strives to maintain the high levels of integrity, loyalty, and excellence that Irving B. Harris expected when he began the company nearly a half a century ago, and which enabled our founder to leave behind a strong legacy of fairness, intelligence, and service for the benefit of others.
