Our Company

The Regal Difference

Our goal is to partner with entrepreneurial financial advisors and provide them with best in class resources and exceptional personalized service. At Regal, we don’t have a “one size fits all” mentality. We have the flexibility to not only accommodate multiple business models but to truly help you grow your business. We leverage the resources of one of the world’s largest and most stable financial institutions with the personalized service and competitive pay of being an independent financial advisor. When you partner with Regal, being independent doesn’t mean you’re on your own.

Our Mission

We strive to create lasting partnerships by providing the highest level of service to our financial advisors. We empower our advisors to meet the needs of their clients with the resources of a large firm and the attention of a boutique firm.

Our Culture

Entrepreneurial. Partnership. Integrity. These are more than just words – these are the foundations of our culture and what we look for in our financial advisors. We are a privately owned company where our employees make the difference by consistently delivering not just good but great service! At Regal, our advisors aren’t a number – they’re a partner we know by first name.

Our Story

Regal Securities was founded in 1977 by George Bokios, a founding member of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, as one of the first regional discount brokerage firms. Regal accounts were sold in 1990 while Regal continued to operate under a non-compete agreement until 1993, re-emerging as a national deep discount firm specializing in stock and options transactions.

Through our high volume, we were able to negotiate more favorable clearing rates than traditional firms, which allowed us to offer smaller full service firms the ability to “piggy back” off of our clearing relationships. This is how we first came to service full service advisors. Over the years, we have developed an expertise in this area and now service financial advisors directly.

Regal offers traditional brokerage, insurance support as well as fee-based advisory services through an affiliated corporation, Regal Advisory Services.

Regal Securities prides itself on the quality of our employees and partners and our financial stability in good times and in bad.
