Wedbush Securities Celebrates Its 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee in 2015

LOS ANGELES, June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wedbush Securities, one of the nation's leading full service investment firms, today announced that it will be celebrating the 60th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary of its founding, on June 30th, 2015. This significant milestone has been made possible by the entrepreneurial spirits of Edward Wedbush and Robert Werner, and all the hard work contributed by its colleagues over the past six decades. In sustaining its noteworthy growth and success over the years, Wedbush continues to celebrate the past, while preparing for the future.

On June 30, 1955, two young entrepreneurs, Edward Wedbush and Robert Werner, completed the SEC registration for newly founded Wedbush & Company. Friends since grade school, they pooled $5,000 each to capitalize their new company. With first year revenues of $659, the founding and growth of Wedbush is an American entrepreneurial success story. Today, Wedbush is one of the nation's leading securities firms, with more than 1,000 colleagues in over 100 offices. Through advanced technology, client financial safety, dedicated service and commitment, Wedbush has a bright future.

To commemorate this iconic milestone, Wedbush Securities will be hosting a celebratory presentation in its corporate office in downtown Los Angeles on Friday, June 26, 2015. The event will include the attendance of notable VIP guests and the presentation of awards in recognition of the company's 60th Anniversary.
