Management Commentary

John J. Gebbia, CEO of Siebert, said "We had an incredible year in 2023 as we delivered a significant improvement in both revenue and profitability while continuing to grow the number of retail clients we support. Throughout the year we remained focused on the execution of our strategic objectives as we continued to modernize our offerings, expand our reach, and enhance our competitive position across our business lines. These included our expanded presence in Miami and New York, the growth of our corporate services business, additional investments in technology, and the capital investment from Kakao Pay. We also note that during 2023, our management team engaged in several initiatives that led to significant growth in our retail customer accounts, the drivers of which were related to a partnership with NFS as well as new retail accounts from corporate services.

We remain optimistic about the numerous opportunities ahead of us to further improve Siebert’s operating model and drive profitable growth to build a more diversified business that can capitalize on the evolving needs of our clients and position Siebert for success."

Andrew Reich, CFO of Siebert, commented: "The strong performance in 2023 was driven by our Securities Finance and retail trading divisions as we successfully navigated volatile market conditions and continued to benefit from the interest rate environment with a diversified model. We also made meaningful progress in improving both our operating income and margins in 2023. Looking ahead, we remain focused on maintaining operational efficiency and driving profitable growth while continuing to support the goals of our strategic partners and clients with a strong capital position."*
