Brokerdealer.com blog is pleased to profile Mischler Financial Group, the financial industry’s oldest and largest minority brokerdealer/investment bank owned and operated by Service-Disabled military veterans. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the firm’s founder and Chairman Walt Mischler is a West Point graduate who served 2 tours of duty in Vietnam prior to being injured in the line of duty. CEO Dean Chamberlain, also a West Point grad, and also certified as a disabled veteran consequent to injuries he sustained during a helicopter training mission, is widely-recognized across the debt capital markets space, much in part due to his prior role as Head of Fixed Income/Americas for global investment bank Nomura Securities.
Mischler is the securities industry’s only federally-certified BD and maintains a significant footprint across both primary debt and equities capital markets where the firm serves as a underwriter, manager, co-manager and/or selling group member for corporate issuers bringing new debt or equities to the investment marketplace. The firm is also one of few in the industry that operates a 24/6 “high touch + high tech” trading desk that facilitates agency-only, direct market access and best execution for institutional clients transacting in US domestic markets and 100+ international equities markets.
