FirstSouthwest was founded in Texas in 1946 by a small group of men who had met during their service in World War II. Following the War, these men merged their individual firms into a small, one-office investment bank dedicated to servicing the finance needs of local Texas municipalities. From this start, FirstSouthwest has grown into a national firm with offices throughout the United States and expertise in every major sector of public finance.
