Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Securities Brokering in the US

Over the past five years, industry revenue has trended upward. However, industry revenue still remains well below prerecessionary levels. A slow economic and financial market recovery, coupled with contracting securities trading volumes, caused revenue to decline in 2012 before slowly starting to improve. Over the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to grow. Recent merger and acquisition (M&A) activity will enable financial firms to capitalize on operational synergies, larger client bases and new financial advisory business segments.

Companies in this industry execute securities buyers’ orders by acting as agents that arrange transactions between buyers and sellers on a commission or transaction-fee basis. The Securities Brokering industry continues to converge with various other securities and banking industries due to regulatory, technological and market trends. However, this report excludes investment banking, securities dealing and commercial banking activities.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
