Leading securities companies in the U.S. 2019, by revenue

In 2019, BlackRock was the largest securities company in the United States by revenue. Its revenue was 14.5 billion U.S. dollars that year, over 3.2 billion U.S. dollars more than second-place Charles Schwab.

U.S. securities industry

The securities industry in the United States has the advantage of its proximity to Wall Street, home to the largest stock exchanges in the world. In New York City alone, the value of bonuses paid to security industry employees amounts to billions of U.S. dollars. Operating in this city gives analysts the opportunity to network with other experts in the field and create effective business networks.

Market demand

BlackRock and Charles Schwab each manage trillions of dollars in assets. They employ investment advisors to meet the wealth management demands from firms and private clients. Whether these clients are looking for high-return investments or saving for retirement, they rely on securities companies to manage their transactions and give them access to financial markets.
