For over 30 years, RW Smith has been a leader and an innovator in the municipal bond industry as a Municipal Securities Broker’s Broker. In 1985 when Dick Smith opened his first office in Seattle, small retail focused firms in the fixed income markets had few option for buying and selling their customers’ bonds because the margins were too small for most large Wall Street firms.
Dick saw the need and a solution: bring institutional expertise to the retail markets. Bring the power of Wall Street economic engines to regional centers across the country. He opened RW Smith to serve as a gateway between Main Street and Wall Street. The company quickly became one of the leaders and most trusted partners in the industry.
Today, RW Smith is a fully licensed and registered fixed-income Interdealer Broker (IDB) with offices in key regional centers across the country.
