Scottrade Financial Services, Inc.

Scottrade headquarters building

Since 1980, our clients have put their trust in us to deliver the right solutions and service that support their individual needs and to help them define their own financial success.

We’ve come a long way from our early days as a value-driven brokerage firm. From the beginning, founder and CEO Rodger Riney believed that providing exceptional value and in-person service could distinguish Scottrade in the industry. Our extensive nationwide network of branch offices allows clients to receive personalized assistance in the communities they call home.

Throughout our more than 35-year history, our clients’ financial plans and goals have evolved – and so have we. We’ve grown the brokerage products and services, expanded banking services and have evolved to offer investment guidance options. Whether clients want to make all their own decisions, validate those decisions or hand it all off to a professional, we’re here to help clear the path so that they have the confidence to build a plan for financial success.

Our firm is organized under a holding company, Scottrade Financial Services, Inc., with four key lines of business.

  • Scottrade, Inc. is the brokerage line of business that so many clients rely on for their trading and investing needs.
  • Scottrade® Advisor Services, a division of Scottrade, Inc., provides custodial and institutional services helping independent Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) grow their businesses. 
  • Scottrade Bank delivers a range of retail services along with commercial and equipment finance lending.
  • Scottrade Investment Management offers investment portfolio guidance and personalized financial advice as well as referrals to independent Registered Investment Advisors through its Advisor AccessTM program.
