Advantages of Reverse Mergers


Aegis Capital Corp initially provided real estate services for an affluent client base. Founded by Robert Eide, Aegis Capital evolved with the growing needs of its clientele. Today, Aegis Capital Corp serves as a financial services company providing reverse merger services.

Reverse mergers, also identified as reverse takeovers, serve as a simpler, less expensive process of going public. Unlike conventional initial public offerings (IPOs), reverse mergers do not require the services of investment banks to underwrite the shares of the company. With a reverse merger, private companies can sell their shares without necessarily raising capital.

Most companies prefer reverse mergers over IPOs for specific reasons. Reverse mergers take a shorter period of time to complete - 30 days for some companies - because of their straightforward process. There is also a higher chance for companies to successfully complete the reverse merger, unlike in conventional IPOs. Because of the efficient process, reverse mergers are less likely to be affected by unfavorable market conditions.

For companies aiming to solely convert their business into a public entity, reverse mergers serve as a viable alternative.

Different Aspects of Wealth Management




Aegis Capital Corp began its operations in 1984 with an affluent client base, most of which were involved in complex real estate transactions. After over thirty years in the business, Aegis Capital now offers institutional services and sales trading. Aegis Capital Corp also retained its original client base by providing them with wealth management services.

Wealth management encompasses all aspects of an individual’s finances. High net worth individuals prefer this holistic approach in planning for their future needs since it involves overall financial planning. Some aspects of wealth management are:

Retirement planning - This process helps individuals identify alternative sources of income, project possible expenses, and create a savings program that can support them and their family during retirement. The job of the wealth manager is to ensure that clients still have a significant cash flow throughout all life stages.

Estate planning - This prepares the client in the event of incapacitation or death. In estate planning, wealth managers prepare the client’s asset base for bequeathal. Major tasks include creating a will, naming an executor, and limiting estate taxes.

Tax accounting - Accounting in general tracks the flow of funds of a business or individual, but tax accounting focuses on the specific rules that entities must follow when filing tax reports. Wealth managers facilitate tax accounting in accordance with the rules of the Internal Revenue Service.

Task Force Modernizes Securities Investor Protection Act in 2010


A full service broker-dealer firm serving retail and institutional clients, Aegis Capital Corp commits to enhancing client goals through an independent, conflict-free platform. Aegis Capital Corp also maintains membership with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), a nonprofit entity created under the Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) of 1970. In June 2010, SIPC formed the Modernization Task Force to modernize and review SIPA and the policies of SIPC.

The Modernization Task Force conducted a comprehensive review of SIPA and the operations and policies of SIPC over the course of its investigation, which included a total of 14 meetings. It also established two subcommittees to handle major issues, such as discussions over possible revisions to SIPA. 

The investigation incorporated the opinions of members of the public and contributions from investor education professionals, mutual fund industry representatives, and other leading authorities. To collect suggestions from the public, the task force created an online platform and held two public forums between September 2010 and June 2011. Members of the Modernization Task Force consisted of regulatory specialists, investor advocates, and academic leaders.

How the SIPC Protects Investors and Their Assets



Founded in 1984, Aegis Capital Corp has established a wide customer base and a strong reputation over the last few decades. Aegis Capital Corp is a member of both FINRA and the SIPC, allowing them to safeguard their customers' assets.

The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) is a nonprofit member corporation. It was established by the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970, and exists to facilitate liquidation when a broker-dealer faces bankruptcy or similar financial woes. When a broker goes under, the SIPC makes sure that customers get their securities and cash assets back promptly.

When liquidation begins, a court-appointed trustee closes the failed brokerage firm and immediately takes control of books and records. In cases where records are poorly organized or incomplete, this first step can take months.

When organized, the trustee requests claim forms from the court. Once approved, these forms will be mailed to the broker's former customers. These individuals have a limited window to file a claim. The trustee will also publish public notice of the pending case.

Once the customers receive their claim forms, they fill them out and submit them along with any documentation that supports their claim. The trustee evaluates a claim, issues a determination letter, and returns the appropriate assets to the customer.
