Since that time, he has built a reputation of providing outstanding client service while trading and managing trade desks in various segments of the industry such as Retail, Brokerage Operations, and Institutional. In 2010, Mike’s passion for trading led him to develop TD Ameritrade’s first Block Trade Desk which then spun off to create a specialized service for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs).
