Jeffrey M. Solomon, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Cowen, said, 'Cowen delivered another profitable quarter despite the challenging economic backdrop and weak market conditions, powered by strong performance in our operating company segment. Our results demonstrate that our business is operating at a higher level than it was before the pandemic and the strategic positioning over the last several years have enabled us to continue performing well.
Even though we expect the markets to remain difficult for the remainder of the year, we believe we are well positioned to gain market share, particularly in partnership with our new colleagues at TD, who we expect to formally join early in 2023. We remain deeply committed to meeting our clients' evolving needs by providing timely strategic advice, innovative financing solutions, world-class investment research, advanced trading and execution capabilities as well as differentiated investment products.'
