Wedbush Securities Adds Former Nomura Director to Equity Trading Team

The firm said Ian Winer will manage all aspects of its equities division.

Independent broker-dealer Wedbush Securities announced the hiring of Ian Winer as director of its equity trading segment, where he'll be tasked with supervising the firm's sales and position traders.
