  • Pathfinders: Successful Women in U.S. Financial History - Mickie Siebert

    March 11, 2020 | Announcements

    The successful women in U.S. financial history profiled here weren’t thinking of making a mark for posterity. They were just doing the best they could. For their family, their community and themselves. But in doing so, they changed history and left their stories behind for inspiration.

    Muriel “Mickie” Siebert, 1928-2013

    Muriel “Mickie” Siebert was just looking after herself. Often referred to as “The First Woman of Finance,” in 1967 Siebert became the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. But her journey to the pinnacle of the finance world started in tragedy.

    Siebert’s father developed cancer during her junior year in college, and the family could no longer pay tuition. Determined to make her own way, she dropped out of college and, refusing to marry for security, moved to Manhattan to support herself. Through creative self-promotion, she got a job as an entry-level research analyst and began learning the brokerage business from the ground up.

  • A fond and grateful farewell to Ladenburg Thalmann and hello to new beginnings

    March 10, 2020 | Media Mentions, Announcements

    At Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services’ annual fee-based advisory conference in January, we welcomed financial advisors, home office executives and strategic partners from across the country. Enthusiasm among the event’s participants was reinforced by new faces from our merger partners at Advisor Group, and our shared message of optimism about the future of our combined company, and our broader industry.

    The diversity and success represented by the participants from Advisor Group and Ladenburg was a cause for celebration of all that we have created at Ladenburg over the past 15 years. We have been privileged to help shape the rapid evolution of an industry that, at its core, is all about helping individuals and families across the country to meet their life goals.

    In recent months, as we approached the completion of Ladenburg Thalmann’s merger with Advisor Group, we have reflected on our remarkable journey. Our transaction with Advisor Group is more than just one of the largest and most high-profile deals in the history of our industry – it is a culmination of strategy and execution by many individuals, with lessons for our broader industry.
