Veteran-Owned Broker-Dealer Pays Tribute to Veterans Day

Veteran-Owned Minority Broker-Dealer Mischler Financial Group Makes 2016 Veterans Day Month Pledge

Courtesy of MarketsMedia Stamford, CT & Newport Beach, CA –Veterans Day is observed by Americans each year on November 11; the day that is dedicated to honoring and extending our gratitude to the millions of men and women who have served within the US military. At Mischler Financial Group (“Mischler”), the financial industry’s oldest institutional brokerage and investment bank owned and operated by service-disabled veterans, Veterans Day is observed every day, and each November Mischler pledges a percentage of the entire month’s profits to carefully-vetted charitable organizations that support veterans and their families in recognition of this national holiday.

To honor Veterans Day Month 2016, Mischler Financial Group has made a financial pledge to three separate organizations that go above and beyond the call of duty to support military veteran families and local communities. Those 501c3 organizations are Bob Woodruff Foundation, The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund and Buildon.org.

Stated Dean Chamberlain, Chief Executive of Mischler Financial, a 20-year veteran of the securities industry and a U.S. Military Academy at West Point alumni, “There are now more than 22 million Americans who have served with integrity and honor in the US Armed Forces, yet when transitioning back to civilian roles, too many are encountering challenges as they seek higher ground. The Mischler Financial year-round philanthropic mission is dedicated to the military veteran community at large, and Veterans Day Month provides a special opportunity for our trading desk and our clients to work together to give back and pay forward to the veteran community in ways that can truly help change lives for the better.”

Added Chamberlain, “This past May, we made our Memorial Day Month pledge to crowdfund campaign Veterans Education Challenge,  as we believe that advanced education is a core component to both personal and professional success. The organizations that we have pledged our Veterans Day Month support to provide equally unique runways by which veterans can further bolster their knowledge base and self-confidence, and in turn, help them to more easily target and capture opportunities as they advance forward.”

According to Dean Chamberlain, CEO of Mischler Financial Group, “In the course of our serving leading corporations, public plan sponsors and the industry’s most recognized investment managers, our mandate is to dedicate the fruits of those labors to veteran-centric organizations that make a crucial difference in the lives of military veterans and their families. Towards that goal, our embracing an organization that sponsors college education for deserving, yet financially-challenged children of military members killed in the line of duty is perhaps one of the most impactful ways that we can “pay it forward.”
