Rick Ness, President and CEO, Penson Financial Services Canada Inc., comments: "The move from self-clearing to Pensonâs outsourced model cements Pensonâs position as the flexible alternative to outsourced clearing services throughout Canada. Penson offers a real alternative to the more inflexible clearing services on the market. Our single-minded dedication to back office securities processing, combined with quality of service and economies of scale provide a viable and cost-effective alternative to the self clearing option. We share common values with Dominick & Dominick and look forward to delivering the level of back office support that will allow this highly reputed firm to concentrate on its main business lines."
Paul Morgante, President of Dominick & Dominick Securities, Inc., agrees that this is a strategic move for both parties: "By outsourcing our clearing activities to this well-regarded, specialist provider, we will be better able to concentrate on our core business â continuing to deliver superior customer services that raise our clientsâ profitability. Further, our carrying broker clients will benefit from the economies of scale and the broader range of clearing and other services that Penson provides to its other high-growth clients."
Laurie Ciotoli, Head of Business Development, Penson Financial Services Canada Inc., says: "Pensonâs impressive Canadian client base continues to enjoy steady growth. This latest new mandate is further proof of our ongoing commitment to deliver superior services backed up by leading edge technology and expert customer care. We are now aggressively going after new business across the country with a view to proactively cement Pensonâs foothold on a national scale."
