Dean Chamberlain » Our Team

Setting Mischler apart from other boutique investment bank / institutional brokerage firms within the financial industry is the fact that our executive team and staff members are led by distinguished American veterans whose attention to detail, discipline and integrity was finely-honed while serving in the ranks and leadership for the greatest military power in the free world, the United States of America.

While there can be no greater honor than serving to defend our country, we take great pride in continuing to give back by serving a critical role for institutional managers who seek both diversity and a reliable access point to free markets.

Each day, our team serves to defend and protect the interests of our corporate treasury clients, as well as federal, state and municipal Issuers in the course of their capital market initiatives. With the same passionate dedication and capability, we also serve the needs of leading institutional investment managers, public plan sponsors, endowments, and foundations.

Our staff is well versed in state statutes that pertain to the investment of public operating monies, as well as statutes with regard to investments for state police and fire pension funds. We remain active in state and nationally-related organizations that serve State of California governmental entities.
