History of Wedbush Securities


The founding and growth of Wedbush Securities is a true American success story. In 1955, two young entrepreneurs, Edward Wedbush and Robert Werner, founded Wedbush & Company. Fresh out of college, they each pooled $5,000 to capitalize their new company--a wise investment in a bright future that is still unfolding. Today, Wedbush Securities is one of the largest securities firms and investment bank, which is headquartered on the West Coast , with almost 1,000 employees in nearly 100 offices. Through advanced technology, a focus on client financial safety, and unwavering dedication to world class service, Wedbush continues to thrive as a leader in the securities business.
