Jefferies is celebrating 50 years of serving its clients, having been first incorporated on 2 October, 1962.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard B. Handler said that the firm was very pleased to be celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Handler went on to say that, five decades from its incorporation, Jefferies was a global, full-service investment bank where putting clients first had been a core value for half a century.
Chairman of the Executive Committee of Jefferies Brian P. Friedman said that the firm had uniquely thrived for the last 50 years, helping its clients achieve their goals.
Friedman added that the success of its clients had proven the foundation of Jefferies’ own success, to the point where it now operates from 30 cities with more 3,800 talented employee-partners.
