Chicago, IL. August 22, 2017 — Cabrera Capital Markets is proud to announce we are now a FINRA registered 15a-6 broker-dealer, also known as a chaperoning broker-dealer. The SEC adopted Rule 15a-6 namely “to facilitate access to foreign markets by U.S. institutional investors through foreign broker-dealers and the research that they provide, consistent with maintaining the safeguards afforded by broker-dealer registration.”
“As a chaperoning broker-dealer, Cabrera can now offer clients high quality, locally produced international research,” said Martin Cabrera, Founder and CEO of Cabrera Capital Markets. “By complementing our global trading expertise with niche local broker research, we are now also able to provide access to local analysts and foreign company roadshows.”
“Cabrera Capital continuously strives to provide clients with the best level of service,” added Robert Aguilar, COO of Cabrera Capital Markets. “As a leading minority-owned enterprise (MBE), we work to ensure we maintain our strong relationships with state pension plans and U.S. fund managers. Now with the expansion of our international relationships and the products and services we can provide, we have further set ourselves apart from our competitors.”
Over the past 18 months, Cabrera Capital Markets has revamped its equity trading desk with the addition of Paul Karrlsson-Willis as Managing Director of Equity Sales and Trading, Robert Livio (VP, Far East), Anthony Santostefano (VP, Emerging Europe and Middle East), Mike Derby (VP, Europe), Andy O’Kelly (VP, Americas) and most recently, Jon Bloom (VP, Americas). The team has an average of 30 years of trading experience.
“Over the past eight months, we have added 65 local brokers” explained Paul Karrlsson-Willis. “This has enabled our sales trading team to supply better market color and local market liquidity in both equities and bonds to our clients. The addition of local research, further corporate access and foreign IPO’s has put Cabrera in the position to compete with any broker on the street.”
