Over its 30+ years in business, RCM distinguished itself by exemplifying the utmost in integrity, professionalism, and customer service.

Throughout its tenure, RCM built exceptional businesses in Fixed Income Brokerage, Equity Sales and Trading, Market Making, and Mutual Fund Distribution.

Renowned for its high-touch service, RCM built its practice around attracting and retaining talented professionals who embodied our core values of proficiency and respect and fostered an unparalleled culture of accountability and camaraderie.

In 2011 Rafferty Capital’s Fixed Income division was acquired by Tradeweb (see below). And after another strategic divestiture in 2021, we decided to focus on other initiatives.  As a result, the RCM broker/dealer ceased operations in 2022.
