Duty. Honor. Country.

Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s words aren’t just a Veterans Day slogan for Mischler Financial Group.

MFG is America’s oldest institutional brokerage and investment bank certified as a Service-Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (SDVOBE). The minority broker-dealer was founded in 1994 and certified by the State of California in 1995. It is also one of the first FINRA members certified by the US Department of Veterans Affairs, the State of New York and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. MFG is 100% employee owned and operated and takes a value-added approach to its public sector business.

“We are unequaled in our command of the financial market terrains in which we operate, and unmatched in our sense of duty, discipline, integrity, and honor… in every undertaking. We leave no client behind,” according to the firm’s mission statement.

MFG’s public finance department includes new issue underwriting and full service secondary market trading of both general obligation and revenue bonds. The firm trades over $14 billion a month in fixed income alone. And it has extensive experience in the public finance underwriting field; the company underwrote its first municipal bond issue in 1999 for the Los Angeles State Building Authority. Today approximately 15% of its underwriting activity is municipal bonds. The firm is also a two-time counterparty to the New York Federal Reserve Bank.

Some of MFG’s recent deals include serving as: co-manager on DASNY’s $1.11 billion of state personal income tax revenue bond sale in October; co-manager on the Regents of the University of California’s $1.05 billion of Medical Center pooled revenue bond deal in August; co-manager on the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s $628.62 million sale of water and revenue bonds in April; and as a selling group member on New York City’s $800.06 million general obligation bond deal in August and on NYC’s $800.45 million GO deal in May.

Walter Mischler, MFG’s founder and chairman, and Dean Chamberlain, its chief executive officer, are both graduates of the U.S. Military Academy.

Mischler, West Point Class of 1969, served with distinction in the Vietnam theatre in the infantry during 1971-1972 before he became disabled. He founded the firm in 1994 and today continues his work with institutional investment managers, major corporations, and government agencies in the federal, state and municipal sectors.

Chamberlain, West Point Class of 1985, had his six-year tour of duty, where he held various leadership positions with the 4th Infantry Division, cut short after suffering a disabling injury during a parachute jump. He began his financial services career in 1992 at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, trading mortgage- and asset-backed securities. Before joining Mischler Financial in 2011, Chamberlain was a member of the board of directors for Nomura Securities International and served as its head of fixed income for the Americas and head of distribution in both North and South America. Previously, he was a senior executive for Bank of America Securities, where he was head of structured products distribution for the Midwest region. Chamberlain said what differentiates MFG from other firms is that “our capital is our own capital. We don’t borrow it from somebody else.” He said the company is reinvesting into the business with its own money, not with somebody else’s.

With headquarters in Stamford, Conn., and Newport Beach, Calif., the firm has offices in eight cities across the U.S. and is staffed by over 55 veterans of the securities industry.

MFG administers corporate share repurchase programs for leading companies, cash management for government entities and corporations, and asset management programs for liquid and alternative investment strategies.

“This firm has been around for over 20 years,” Chamberlain said, “but for 17 of those years did mostly secondary sales and trading in a robust client base covering cities, counties and states in the middle market.”

Over the last six years, he said, the firm has adopted a new business model that says “slow and steady wins the race, build our capital, hire veterans, hire qualified people and add value, add value, add value. And that’s done very well for all of us.”

Richard Tilghman, MFG’s Managing Director of Public Finance, exemplifies the best of that new strategy. He went to Yale University and spent 19 months in Vietnam as a Marine infantry officer.

Tilghman has been in municipal bonds since 1971. He began his career at First Boston Corp. in public finance and worked on its trading floor. He has been in munis ever since, having been employed at such firms as Greenwich Partners, First Albany, Public Resources Advisory Group, Lehman, and Ramirez & Co. He joined Mischler Financial in 2014.

He said the competitive arena was a new area that the firm has become involved in adding that the firm has already participated at the co-manager level on several bond sales.

robert-karr-mischler-financial-capital-marketsRobert Karr joined MFG in 2011, to head the firm’s capital markets group. He previously worked at Bank of America Securities and at Prudential Securities, where he ran structured finance.

Karr said he believes in the idea of a firm that does “the right thing for the customer, where you may not maximize the value [for yourself] on a given trade or deal … but you build a business and a relationship for the long term.”

Since 2011, when MFG significantly expanded its capital markets focus and staffing, the debt capital markets group has done about 750 deals with over $920 billion in issuance from 156 unique issuers. In 2015, the firm was involved in 76 municipal deals for about $32.5 billion and so far in 2016, it has been involved in about 66 deals for about $30.8 billion.

In 2015, the firm had a record breaking year, with all underwriting areas doing about $295 billion of business in 107 issues.

“Our business ethos is we want people to say ‘great firm, great origination, great trading great service, great distribution and oh, by the way, they’re a service disabled veteran firm that gives back.’ That’s what it’s all about for us,” he said.

In its charitable role, MFG will donate a percentage of the entire month of November’s profits to The Bob Woodruff Foundation, The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund and Buildon.org in observance of Veterans Day 2016.

For Mischler Financial Group, the battle to add value for its clients and provide support for the country while keeping its focus on those who have served in the military, is one precept to which they will be always faithful.

Mischler Financial 2016 Annual Veterans Day Month Pledge: Three Philanthropic Missions

Mischler 2016 Annual Veterans Day Month Pledge Supports Three Special Philanthropies

 Industry’s oldest Minority Firm Owned  & Operated by Service-Disabled Vets Gives Back and Pays Forward

Stamford, CT & Newport Beach, CA –November 1, 2016 —Veterans Day is observed by Americans each year on November 11; the day that is dedicated to honoring and extending our gratitude to the millions of men and women who have served within the US military. At Mischler Financial Group (“Mischler”), the financial industry’s oldest institutional brokerage and investment bank owned and operated by service-disabled veterans, Veterans Day is observed every day, and each November Mischler pledges a percentage of the entire month’s profits to carefully-vetted charitable organizations that support veterans and their families in recognition of this national holiday.

To honor Veterans Day Month 2016, Mischler Financial Group has made a financial pledge to three separate organizations that go above and beyond the call of duty to support military veteran families and local communities. Those 501c3 organizations are Bob Woodruff Foundation, The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund and Buildon.org.

Stated Dean Chamberlain, Chief Executive of Mischler Financial, a 20-year veteran of the securities industry and a U.S. Military Academy at West Point alumni, “There are now more than 20 million Americans who have served with integrity and honor in the US Armed Forces, yet when transitioning back to civilian roles, too many are encountering challenges as they seek higher ground. The Mischler Financial year-round philanthropic mission is dedicated to the military veteran community at large, and Veterans Day Month provides a special opportunity for our trading desk and our clients to work together to give back and pay forward to the veteran community in ways that can truly help change lives for the better.”

Added Chamberlain, “This past May, we made our Memorial Day Month pledge to crowdfund campaign Veterans Education Challenge,  as we believe that advanced education is a core component to both personal and professional success. The organizations that we have pledged our Veterans Day Month support to provide equally unique runways by which veterans can further bolster their knowledge base and self-confidence, and in turn, help them to more easily target and capture opportunities as they advance forward.”

Mischler Military Ethos: The Next Generation

At Mischler Financial Group, our senior leaders, including Founder/Chairman Walt Mischler and now, Chief Executive Dean Chamberlain are intimately familiar with the sometimes bittersweet emotion experienced when our children come of age and make the life-changing decision to embrace a path that requires a commitment that can inevitably put our children in harm’s way.

Stamford, CT— June 22, 2016 —Memorial Day and Veterans Day are the two US Holidays dedicated to honoring those who have served within the US military and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country. At Mischler Financial Group, a debt market specialist and the securities industry’s oldest broker-dealer owned and operated by Service-Disabled Veterans, these two national holidays represent more than just a time for remembrance, they are a call to arms and the inspiration for month-long missions during which the firm and its squad of military veterans-now-financial industry veterans go beyond the call of duty. During the months of May and November, the firm allocates a portion of the months’ entire commission revenue to carefully-vetted programs dedicated to helping US military veterans and their families.

On May 1, Mischler made its annual Memorial Day Month pledge to Veterans Education Challenge, aka @VetEdChallenge, the crowdfund campaign launched on Veterans Day 2015 and committed to providing veteran educational scholarships with a preference to Pell-eligible undergraduate and graduate students. This week, Mischler CEO Dean Chamberlain and Mischler Financial Group founder Walt Mischler, both graduates of the US Military Academy at West Point, and both certified SDVs who have since risen to the top ranks of the financial industry, announced that the firm has delivered a check in the amount of $22,000 to the Veterans Education Challenge campaign. The first $1million raised before Veterans Day 2016 will be matched by philanthropists Bruce and Avis Richards. Mr. Richards is a co-founder of Marathon Asset Management, the $13bil AUM fund specializing in global credit and fixed income.

CEO Dean Chamberlain

Stated Dean Chamberlain, “We evaluate philanthropies similar to the way top investment managers analyze financial market opportunities; the goal is to achieve the highest risk adjusted returns when compared to alternatives.” Added Chamberlain, “Until we’re proven wrong, we believe that investing in the education of disciplined and determined veteran students provides the greatest return on capital for those students, their families, the enterprises they go to work for and the communities in which they live.”

Contributions to Veterans Education Challenge will go towards veteran scholarship awards that go beyond the provisions of the GI Bill and will be based on financial need with a priority and preference to Pell-eligible undergraduate and graduate students. Veterans will be eligible to renew awards based on financial need and standing with their universities.

To Honor Memorial Day, Mischler Pledges Profits to VetEdChallenge
May 2016      Company News, Giving Back, News and Information   

vetedchallenge-crowdrise-mischlerNewport Beach, CA & Stamford, CT, May 12, 2016–Mischler Financial Group (“MFG”), the financial industry’s oldest minority investment bank and institutional brokerage owned and operated by Service-Disabled Veterans, announced today that in recognition of the upcoming Memorial Day celebration, the firm has pledged a percentage of its entire May profits to Veterans Education Challenge, (“VetEdChallenge”) a donation-based crowdfund campaign. The philanthropic initiative is dedicated to providing need-based college scholarships to ex-military students pursuing higher education so they can get better access to a broad range of career development opportunities.

Veterans Education Challenge was established in November 2015 by investment management industry veteran Bruce Richards and his wife Avis. Mr. Richards is personally matching the first $1million in donations made to the “VetEdChallenge” campaign via crowdfund platform “Crowdrise.” He  is co-founder, CEO and managing partner of Marathon Asset Management, the $12.5 billion investment firm specializing in global credit and fixed income markets.

“This Memorial Day Month we’ve embraced a more contemporary approach to paying it forward via the VetEdChallenge program”, said Mischler Financial Group CEO Dean Chamberlain, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point who himself earned his MBA via a work-scholarship program at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. “Our annual, entire month of May pledge in honor of Memorial Day, as well as our annual Veteran’s Day Month pledge has typically focused on traditional, best-in-class philanthropies and we believe the VetEdCballenge is an ideal vehicle to directly impact the future of returning veterans, as higher education can provide a material lift in the course of pursuing opportunities.”

Added Chamberlain, “Because we are always mentoring returning veterans, we know first-hand about the challenges these men and women face as they assimilate back into the mainstream and find themselves working multiple jobs to put aside funds for educational degrees beyond their pre-military academic background. We’re proud to partner with Bruce Richards and be affiliated with his truly thought-leading program. We encourage our institutional clients to help us support this initiative via our trading desk(s) and/or directly via the Veterans Education Challenge crowdfund program.

BNY Mellon & Mischler: Re-Defining Our Bond

As a boutique investment bank with boot prints extending across the primary and secondary debt capital markets, including investment grade, ABS, MBS, Government agencies and Municipal/Public Finance sectors, Mischler’s capital markets team is proud to maintain long-standing relationships with counterparts at each of the industry’s primary investment banks and lead underwriting and syndicate groups. Today, we’re particularly proud of the close working relationship we maintain with BNY Mellon, the oldest banking corporation in the U.S and the largest deposit bank in the world with nearly $29 trillion of assets under custody and/or administration and $1.6 trillion AUM.

BNY Mellon is also one of the Fortune 200’s leading advocates of veteran support programs, and through VetNet, its Employee Resource Group, this dedicated unit exists to promote the professional development and advancement of veterans and members of the broader military family. Today, it has a membership of approximately 600 people across six regional chapters in the US and UK.

But, were it not for the perseverance of BNY Mellon’s UK-based Business Development Exec Charles Thompson, this story could not be told and the now international news media story below would not have crossed the air waves.

Towards providing ‘advance color’ re the clip below, BNY Mellon’s  Charlie Thompson is a former professional rugby player who, after migrating to the world of banking, has quickly become known across the BNY Mellon platform for bringing along the skills that rugby players are best known for, which are synonymous with the qualities that BNY Mellon is long-recognized for in the course of serving its constituents: integrity, unbridled determination and tenacity.  It is those qualities that led to a remarkable discovery on behalf of Mischler Financial Group Managing Director Rick Tilghman, a former US Marine who, while serving in Vietnam was awarded not one, but two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star With Valor. Rick is now one of the municipal bond markets’ leading elder statesman who joined Mischler in 2014 to oversee our firm’s Public Finance Group.

The reel below tells the story. On behalf of Mischler family member Rick Tilghman and our entire firm, we extend our gratitude to Charlie Thompson and we offer a special salute to BNY Mellon’s Colleen Krieger, VP of Corporation Communications for bringing this story to the front page and further extending to the global financial community via this link. We thank you for your service and your camaraderie.
