With the acquisition of Scottrade by TD Ameritrade now complete, Brian Stimpfl, head of Scottrade Advisor Services, highlights what’s next for advisors, and Scottrade Founder Rodger Riney reflects on the legacy of the company.

The Best is Yet to Come With the TD Ameritrade Acquisition

We pledged to keep you up to date on TD Ameritrade’s acquisition of Scottrade, and today I’m excited to let you know that it’s now complete. We’re one company. I realize this news probably raises more than a few questions, so let me start with a reassurance:

Nothing is changing right now for our advisors. Scottrade and TD Ameritrade will operate as separate firms until early next year when we expect to transition Scottrade Advisor Services to TD Ameritrade Institutional. The Scottrade name will remain in place until then. For more information and updates, I invite you to visit the Transition Hub. We’re committed to keeping you up-to-date on our progress and providing you with plenty of notice prior to any changes that may impact you.

In the meantime, you don’t have to do anything differently. You can still log in and access the trading platform, and manage your client accounts as you’ve done in the past.

I think you'll be excited about the enhanced experience you'll have after the transition. TD Ameritrade shares the values instituted when Rodger Riney founded Scottrade 37 years ago. (For more about that, check out Rodger’s video below.) Plus, with TD Ameritrade Institutional, advisors will have access to an innovative trading and client management platform and an expanded set of advisor-focused services, support and research.

On a personal note, thank you for entrusting Scottrade Advisor Services with your business. I believe that with this combination, the best is yet to come.

Brian Stimpfl
Head of Scottrade Advisor Services
