Bowstring Advisors to be acquired by Citizens Financial Group


On behalf of the firm, we personally want to make you aware that Bowstring Advisors, formerly CHILDS Advisory Partners, is being acquired by Citizens Financial Group, Inc. – one of the nation’s oldest and largest financial institutions. The acquisition will enable us to provide a broader set of solutions to our clients, and allow us to leverage additional senior talent, capacity and scale.

In meeting with Citizens, what impressed us the most and instilled confidence was our mutual dedication to understanding and serving our clients’ needs. It’s a cultural cornerstone of both firms and will continue to be at the core of everything we do.

Shortly after closing next month, we will begin to operate as a division of Citizens Capital Markets Inc.

Rest assured we are committed to putting clients’ first and look forward to an even brighter future together.
