Where it all started.
In 1975, a small investment banking firm known as First Omaha Securities, Inc. opened its doors for the first time. Thirty-seven years later, that company is known as TD Ameritrade, one of the largest online brokerage companies in the country. With more than 120 offices and branches nationwide, we continue to call Omaha home. And our Midwestern values continue to guide us every day.
From the premium we place on people, to our passion for leading-edge technologies, to our green initiatives and community outreach, our values are at the center of everything we do. They guide us as we continue to re-imagine how our working environments can promote a more collaborative and inviting experience for all. They drive our ongoing partnerships with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, Special Olympics, and United Way. They make us proud. They make us unique. They allow us to lead the way.
As we work towards building a better, brighter future, we will continue improving our tools and solutions, enhancing the experiences of our clients and employees, building greener facilities, and lending a helping hand to those in need in our communities. Because no matter the challenge or the goal, we will never lose sight of the values that have steered us right from the start.
It’s not just our company color.
Helping the communities where we live and work isn’t just about volunteerism and money. It’s about being a good neighbor. Over the last five years we have increased our focus on reducing our carbon footprint by seeking LEED® Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for real estate projects that involve renovation or new construction. Our largest project to date is our new 12-story, 530,000 square foot office tower in Omaha, Neb., which received LEED® Platinum Certification in 2014 – the highest certification available.
