About The Firm
In 2007, Blaylock Robert Van, LLC was formed when Blaylock & Co., an investment bank founded in 1993 by Ronald E. Blaylock, and Robert Van Securities, a financial services firm founded in 1991 by Eric V. Standifer, joined forces. This merger created a powerhouse firm that combines the highly regarded capital markets prowess of Blaylock & Co., with the cutting-edge technological platforms of Robert Van Securities. In 2017, the firm cemented this unique and valuable combination when they received permission to rename the firm Blaylock Van, LLC.
