"SunTrust continues to build its client base and reinforce its reputation as a leading wealth and investment management group through its strategic acquisition of assets of CSI Capital Management, one of the premier wealth management groups in California," said Thomas Carroll, managing director of SunTrust sports and entertainment specialty group. 

"Our experience helps successful artists, athletes and entertainers—and others affiliated with the business of sports and entertainment—achieve their financial goals.  We welcome the wealth management experience, reputation and proven client relationships represented by the people, brand and capabilities of CSI Capital Management."

SunTrust Banks serves a broad range of consumer, commercial, corporate and institutional clients. As of March 31, 2011, SunTrust had total assets of $170.8 billion and total deposits of $124.0 billion.
