 Cantella and Co., Inc. was founded in 1952 as a specialist on the floor of the Boston Stock Exchange, making markets over the years in hundreds of New England-based companies. In 1969, the company purchased a seat on the New York Stock Exchange and, at one time, Cantella was one of the largest execution providers for institutional investors and asset owners in Pacific Rim countries. Always forward looking, the firm has continued to evolve, remaining a leader as the industry landscape has changed. Cantella now focuses on providing solutions for financial representatives, broker/dealers and RIAs, continuing to help clients realize their financial goals.
