Working in Merrion Stockbrokers Back  
An employer profile of the stockbroking firm Merrion Stockbrokers, recently taken over by the leading Icelandic bank, Landsbanki.
Established in 1999, Merrion has set itself apart through its creative and dynamic approach to its services. In December 2005 Merrion Capital Group's shareholders entered into a transaction with Landsbanki, a leading Icelandic bank listed on the Icelandic Stock Exchange (ISEX). Landsbanki has acquired an initial 50 per cent shareholding in Merrion and will purchase the remaining shares over a three year period. Currently, the remaining shares are owned by staff and by New York based investment bank, Allen & Co.
