Not all trades are created equal—and National Securities’ fixed income and equity trading operations have quite a bit more depth and breadth than many similarly-sized independent contractor firms.
To serve clients better, National Securities has a team of traders based in New York, which functions as a liaison between its retail brokers and its wholesale staff members. National Securities’ trading operation has the kind of experience that you might expect at a larger firm—our trading team members are seasoned, many with over 20 years in the business. National Securities’ traders have weathered market cycles—and they know how to get the job done.
National Securities is large enough to execute your trades like the “big guys,” but small enough to listen and give the individual attention needed. As a measure of National Securities’ commitment to the reps, the Firm regularly entertains inquiries from brokers about market making in specific stocks.
