Mischler Financial: Now A NY State Certified Veteran Owned Broker Dealer
December 2014      Company News   

In connection with the May 12 2014 enactment of the New York State-Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act, the Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced on Dec 2 2014 that Mischler Financial Group, Inc. became one of the very first New York State certified veteran-owned broker dealer and SDVOB under the New York State Office of General Services, Division of Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business Development.

“Creating this program for New York’s service-disabled veterans is another way to show our deep appreciation for the brave men and women who serve our country,” Governor Cuomo said. “By providing these opportunities, New York is again leading the way in how our nation supports those who serve, and I am proud to announce the first businesses certified under this initiative.”

The May passage of the NYS Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act establishes a 6 percent goal for participation on State contracts by service disabled veteran owned firms in addition to other measures to support these companies. The federal government’s goal for awarding contracts to veteran-owned businesses is only three percent and no other state in the nation offers as robust a program which includes set-aside contracts to these small businesses.

In a statement made by Office of General Services Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito, “I am pleased OGS has certified the first businesses under Governor Cuomo’s Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act. It is only right that service-disabled veterans receive public support and be fully and meaningfully involved in public procurement and State contracts.”

In a separate announcement made by the New York Federal Reserve Bank on Nov 17, 2014, Mischler was selected to participate in the NYFRB’s recently-announced Mortgage Operations Counterparty Pilot Program. Mischler was 1 of 3 firms selected for this program, which is anticipated to run for about 1 year. In June 2013, Mischler had been selected to participate in the New York Fed’s Treasury Operations Counterparty Pilot Program.

Mischler Financial Group, Inc., a registered broker-dealer established in 1994 is the financial industry’s oldest investment bank and institutional brokerage owned and operated by service-disabled veterans. Mischler was one of 21 enterprises to receive the New York State certification, which formalizes the eligibility of respective business to participate in contracting opportunities with New York State and related New York State agencies. The certification reference number is 41005.

Mischler Financial Group, Inc. specializes in primary Debt Capital Market (DCM) issuance of Government, Agency, Corporate and Municipal bonds, Equity Capital Market (ECM) underwriting and also provides institutional clients of the firm, including corporate treasurers, with agency-only secondary market execution in fixed income instruments (government securities, corporate bonds, asset-backed, mortgage-backed and municipal securities), as well as agency-only best execution for corporate share repurchase programs (10b-18), and block trading in US listed and International equities.

To qualify as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business, the owner or owners must have received a compensation rating of 10 percent or greater from the United State department of Veterans Affairs or have incurred an injury while in uniform equivalent to a compensation rating of 10 percent or greater from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. National Guard veterans may also be eligible upon confirmation of a service-disability by the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs.

Mischler Financial Group Announces Dean Chamberlain Elevated to CEO; Securities Industry’s Oldest Minority SDVBE Taps Top Wall Street Veteran
January 2013      Company News, News and Information   

For Immediate Release

Newport Beach, CA, January 15–Mischler Financial Group (“MFG”), the securities industry’s oldest minority firm certified as a Service-Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise (SDVBE), announced today that Dean Chamberlain, who joined the firm as a principal in early 2011, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, a role previously held by firm founder and Chairman Walter Mischler.  A West Point graduate who served 6 years as an Officer in the U.S. Army before commencing his now 21-year career on Wall Street, Mr. Chamberlain was most recently the Head of Fixed Income/Americas for Nomura Securities International.  He previously held executive roles at Bank of America and JPMorgan.

Commenting on the executive transition, founder Walt Mischler stated, “When considering his background, Dean is indisputably the most qualified and most capable person to guide our firm for the next generation. After sustaining injuries while serving as an Officer in our armed forces, he re-purposed himself and became a leader within the financial service industry. Dean’s ability to guide an aspiring Tier 1 institutional brokerage is evidenced by his long-standing track record, including the heightened recognition we’ve gained from Fortune 500 issuers, leading institutional investors and top Wall Street firms since Dean and his team first joined MFG.”


CEO Dean Chamberlain

Newly-appointed CEO Dean Chamberlain stated, “This is a unique opportunity, both personally and professionally; it allows me to contribute 2 decades of Wall Street leadership experience to expand a platform that truly meets the diversity goals of issuers and investment managers who require the capabilities typical to traditional ‘bulge bracket’ firms. The special dividend is my being able to help extend the firm’s formidable legacy and support of vital causes that empower disabled armed service veterans and their families.”
