Legent Clearing Overview

Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, Legent Clearing was formed when Mutual of Omaha sold its Kirkpatrick Pettis brokerage, asset management and clearing businesses in 2002. Privately owned, the firm's principals and majority shareholders have all held senior management positions at major financial institutions.  That collective experience fostered the "Custom-Fit Clearing Solutions" formula that has enabled the firm to steadily and selectively add new relationships.

Legent continues to expand its infrastructure and diversify its service capabilities through strategic alliances with Thomson Reuters, Sungard, Mediant Communications, Fetter Logic (Quadron Data Solutions) and other notable technology providers. The firm clears for approximately 80 retail and institutional firms with a concentration in the independent and online discount brokerage market.  

Legent's  product suite includes fully-integrated broker workstations, a variety of trading and order management interfaces, expansive market data, global research, numerous cash management options, sophisticated advisory/wealth management services, client-customized reporting capabilities, extensive inventory of fixed income and alternative investment products, compliance and risk management tools, cost basis reporting on every statement, online proxy voting, and education and training assistance.
