Our Founder - Richard Schultz

In July of 1976, during our country's bicentennial, Richard Schultz founded Triad Securities Corporation.

Originally set up as a retail brokerage firm, Triad found a way of executing directly on the floor of the NYSE and the trading desks of NASDAQ members for institutional customers.

Always as an 'agency only' broker, Triad put the customers first and worked diligently to get the best execution. Richard built Triad from the ground up and maneuvered around the market fluctuations during the crash of 1987, the internet bubble in 2000 and the great recession in 2008. Starting Triad Limited in 1995 made Triad a global brand.

Before starting Triad Securities Richard was at firms such as EF Hutton, Bear Stearns, Weisenberg, Weis Voison & Co and Muriel Seibert. He was the President of Ladenberg Thalmann in the 1970s. Richard left a legacy as an extremely hard worker and passed on to his whole firm the ethics and responsibility of being good brokers for the customer.

Richard passed away on January 31, 2012.
