Discovery Introduces Extensive BD Profiles
EATONTOWN, NJ — October 3, 2011 — Today Discovery rolled out extensive enhancements to its profiles of Broker-Dealer (BD) firms. The wide ranging improvements have been added to Discovery’s BD database.
Discovery has added multi-category profiles. If a BD is both retail and institutional, that is now indicated. If a BD offers multiple services, that is now indicated. Some of the added or enhanced service categories are wealth management, investment banking, institutional sales and trading, clearing and trade execution, corporate finance, public finance and prime brokerage.
Geographic footprint labels have been expanded to now include national, regional, multi-state and local. A large number of BDs have been re-categorized to more accurately represent their current status. In addition, Discovery has expanded and improved its listings of industry relationships for each BD, such as clearing firms and affiliations with RIAs and other BDs.
Discovery CEO, Bob Herrmann, stated "When our clients request from our database a list of BDs offering a certain line of business, a dramatically expanded and more accurate list will now come up."
