Securities Brokering in the US
Over the five years to 2018, industry revenue has increased an annualized 2.5% to an estimated $158.4 billion. However, industry revenue still remains well below prerecessionary levels. Slow economic and financial market recovery, coupled with contracting securities trading volumes, caused revenue to stagnate in 2012 before slowly starting to improve. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to decline an annualized 0.2% to $157.1 billion. Continued merger and acquisition (M&A) activity will enable financial firms to capitalize on operational synergies, larger client bases and new financial advisory business segments. The future profitability of securities brokerage firms will vary based on operators' mix of financial services, their ability to adapt to technological change and the success of M&A activity.
Companies in this industry act as agents that arrange transactions between securities 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.
