Gov. Ricketts’ Statement on TD Ameritrade’s Announcement


LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following TD Ameritrade’s announcement that they would be sold to Charles Schwab.


“Today’s announcement by TD Ameritrade creates significant uncertainty for the thousands of Nebraskans who have loyally worked for the company through the years.  As Governor and the former COO of Ameritrade, I am anxious to see what their decision means for the people of Nebraska.


“In the coming days, I will work to personally make the case to Schwab to stay committed to Omaha.  Our cost of doing business is incredibly competitive and our people are the most hardworking in the nation.  We can help Schwab be successful and take their business to the next level as they compete nationally and internationally.”
