Originally started in 1976, David Lerner Associates is a privately-held securities broker/dealer, with clients' assets of more than $4.5 billion. From the beginning, the firm has been committed to educating the public about investing opportunities available to them. To that end, the company regularly holds free investment seminars. These seminars attract thousands of people every year and are held throughout the tri-state New York area and in Florida. While offering a range of investments, we feature those that we believe are based on real value and are designed to pay dividends, distributions or interest.
