As of October (ish) I will no longer work for a small privately owned broker dealer. KMS (My employer) has reached an agreement to sell to Ladenburg Thalmann, a large firm who owns several broker dealers.
We don't have any indication that our jobs are in danger, or that things will change vastly with this new agreement/acquisition just that ownership will be different.
I believe our leadership did this in the best interest of our Company and the people that work there. I trust our leadership and know that there are likely good and big things ahead for us.
Though, I have to say, logging on to the Wall Street Journal and seeing our name in an article was a big shocking for our little B/D.
Now, for the ride...
