Veteran-owned Broker-Dealer Mischler Financial Group, Inc. (“Mischler”) was established in 1994 and is positioned as a boutique investment bank and conflict-free institutional brokerage. A fully-certified minority broker-dealer, we were the first FINRA member to be designated as a Service-Disabled-Veteran-Business Enterprise (SDVBE). Today, Mischler is recognized for its role as a leading capital markets boutique operating within the financial market ecosystem. We maintain offices in 8 major cities and we are staffed by more than 50 securities industry veterans.
Mischler provides primary debt and equity capital markets underwriting (DCM and ECM) and agency-only, best execution across the secondary market for global equities and fixed income securities. In that role, we also serve Fortune corporate treasurers in the course of their issuing new debt and equity offerings and administering their respective corporate share repurchase aka 10b-18 programs. Further, Mischler provides cash management for government entities and corporations, and asset management programs for liquid and alternative investment strategies.
Founder & Chairman Walter Mischler, CEO Dean Chamberlain, as well as our other senior team members are all seasoned Wall Street veterans; each have previously held executive roles at the industry’s most-recognized investment banks/brokerages. Our leaders and many of our staff are US Military (Service-Disabled) Veterans who served with distinction as Officers prior to their now long-standing Wall Street careers.
Mischler Financial is uniquely-positioned to address both the Diversity & Inclusion goals and the capital markets needs of Fortune corporate treasurers, public plan sponsors, municipal debt issuers and institutional investment managers who require the capabilities typical to Tier 1 investment banks, the quality of personal service typical to a true boutique, and the need to comply with respective diversity & inclusion goals and minority-firm mandates.
During the past two years alone and working as a complement to Fortune issuers’ lead investment banks, Mischler has managed, co-managed and/or served as an integral selling group member for more than 500 capital market transactions, representing approximately $500bil in primary Debt and Equity Capital Market underwritings.
Working as a fiduciary, we surpass client needs by providing granular trading market insight, thoughtful capital markets analysis, investment banking services and financial product fluency. On a transactional basis, we secure best execution by leveraging advanced trading system technologies and long-established, high-touch relationships throughout the sell-side ecosystem.
We take exceptional pride for being recognized as a fully-accredited, Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SDVBE)* by the U.S. Department of General Services Office of Small Business Certification and Resources, the California State Treasurer’s Office, New York State Office of General Services, and various other state agencies throughout the United States. Through this designation, one that our founders literally fought with their lives to earn, we offer a unique capability for government entities, public corporations, insurance enterprises, fund management concerns and non-profits to fulfill their regulatory requirements, mandates and fiduciary obligations that are specifically intended to honor and support service-disabled veterans who seek to achieve the American Dream.
