Stanley Abel and Gene Noser co-founded Abel Noser in 1975 with the goal of becoming a leader in conflict-free, low cost trading. At the time, it was a radical proposition which upset the status-quo of the traditional brokerage firm model. In their words, they "created a better mouse trap, developing effective trading cost analyses to show we were delivering value." Four decades later, Abel Noser has continued to deliver the same value proposition. Gene and Stanley "passed the baton" to existing management in the Fall of 2016.
Stanley and Gene continue to serve as valued advisors to the firm they started.
