About Us

A Distinguished Heritage

Dorsey & Company is the only locally owned, independent wealth management firm in the Gulf South region. Since our founding by George P. Dorsey in 1959, the company has remained in the city of New Orleans. Today, his son, Philip J. Dorsey, serves as President and CEO of the company.

Our firm’s commitment to sound, responsible management and a time-tested investment approach allowed us to thrive during economic storms that forced other business in New Orleans to align themselves with out-of-town businesses.

While Dorsey & Company’s roots are grounded in the underwriting, distribution, and secondary market trading of Louisiana and Mississippi tax-free municipal bonds, we now offer a comprehensive array of services and products.

We are very proud of our distinguished history of accomplishments. These include participating in nearly all of the most memorable public finance projects in the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans. We have also been a key player in numerous general obligation bond issues in the state, including the New Orleans Mississippi River Bridge, the Domed Stadium, the Causeway, the International Trade Mart, and many others.
