NEW YORK, NY, April 24, 2018: Auerbach Grayson & Company, LLC, a New York-based brokerage firm specializing in global trade execution and exclusive in-depth research for U.S. institutional investors ( a subsidiary of Beltone Financial) , announced today that it will open its first international office in London as part of its global expansion efforts.
Auerbach Grayson & Company, LLC was built on the vision that U.S. institutional investors should have access to every capital market where investment opportunities exist.
By establishing partnerships with local and regional brokers and banks in virtually every emerging, frontier and developed market worldwide, clients can directly access over 120 markets. With analysts in every region, the firm provides institutional investors with trade execution and in-depth equity research stemming from its local partners.
“We are excited to be expanding into London to meet the increased demand for our product in Europe,” said David Grayson, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder at Auerbach Grayson. “There is no other broker that offers access to as many international markets, and we look forward to providing these sought-after opportunities to the European region.”
In addition to consolidating its offering to align with MiFID II regulations, the expansion will establish closer ties with U.K. and European clients, as the firm continues to deliver best-in-class international market research and access.
“We are happy to see the expansion of Auerbach Grayson’s unparalleled US product offering to the European market. We are looking forward to sharing our experience in over 120 markets around the world with our European clients through our London office. This expansion is the first step in Auerbach Grayson’s global expansion plan and a further commitment to our global presence and offering. We will continue to grow our product offering in the emerging and frontier markets,” said Bassem Azab, Chief Executive Officer of Beltone Financial.
The London office is slated to open in June of 2018.
“London was a natural first-choice to kick-off our global expansion efforts,” said Grayson. “The location complements our New York flagship as one of the leading international financial centers in the world. We look forward to exploring additional global cities in the effort to bolster our international presence and offer our product more widely.”
