The Beginning. The firm was founded by Dan Roberts, a US Marine Corps Vietnam War combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient. Roberts & Ryan, America’s 1st broker-dealer of its kind, attained the minority designation – Service-Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVO) – once it was codified into law.
The Present. In 2017, a group of like-minded Veterans and Citizen Patriots – all experienced Wall Street professionals – bought Roberts & Ryan with the dual mission of doing well – providing great service to their clients, while doing good – supporting our nation’s Veterans and adult youth in mental health, wellness, and career transition through charitable donations and volunteerism.
Roberts & Ryan now provides agency equity and debt execution services, distribution of equity and debt capital transactions as co-managers, as well as delivering corporate access events and desk research to our institutional asset managers, banks, family offices, and corporate treasuries.
