Bancroft Capital Veteran Training Program Graduate Ryan D’Alessandro Joins Bancroft Team

Posted: January 9, 2024

Bancroft Capital, a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) specializing in Institutional Brokerage and Capital Markets services, announced that USA(Ret) Sergeant Ryan D’Alessandro has formally joined the Bancroft team as an Associate in Syndicate/Capital Markets.

D’Alessandro is a 2023 graduate of Bancroft’s Veteran Training Program (VTP). Funded by company profits, the VTP puts disabled veterans in a position to develop a skill set capable of supporting a new career as Institutional Traders and Investment Bankers.

“We are excited to bring Ryan onboard as an Associate to continue his growth and development across Syndicate/Capital Markets sector,” said Bancroft CEO Cauldon Quinn. “He has tremendous potential and believe he will be vital to Bancroft team moving forward.”

D’Alessandro came to Bancroft in 2023 as a former United States Army Non-Commissioned Officer. He spent three years in the Marine Corps Reserve Component, before completing his intra-service transfer to follow his desire to become a Green Beret in the U.S. Army. He completed basic training and airborne school and served in the 173rd airborne Brigade and 82nd Airborne Division as a team leader during deployment.

He was honorably discharged as a disabled veteran and finished his bachelor’s degree in International Business at the College of Staten Island with a 4.0 GPA while working full-time at UBS as a registered client services associate. He is registered with FINRA and holds the SIE and Series 7, 66, and 79 licenses.

“I am grateful for this opportunity to become an official member of the Bancroft Team,” said D’Alessandro. “I chose to stay on full-time with Bancroft because I believe in the culture and fully support their mission of training transitioning service members for careers in finance.”

Bancroft was co-founded in 2017 by Cauldon Quinn, a disabled Navy veteran. His vision was to build a company with a strong commitment to service: service to clients, country, and veterans. Bancroft places financial industry veterans alongside military veterans to deliver value-added content to its clients; and strives to offer best-in-class service to its institutional clients across an array of financial services. Bancroft rises above the competition on the merit of value-added content and leadership derived from industry veterans with 40-plus years of industry pedigree.

Committed to offering meaningful training and employment to service-disabled veterans, Bancroft Capital launched its signature Veteran Training Program (VTP) in 2019. Bancroft funnels profits, earned through its hard work and extensive knowledge, into the VTP. Bancroft is dedicated to helping restore disabled veterans to their rightful place as leaders in our society and communities, but first and foremost as providers for their own families.

 Bancroft aims to offer paid opportunities to up to four VTP candidates each year. Candidate training includes a rotation among the five business units Bancroft operates and an introduction to back office and operations functions, sales trading and compliance while participating in the VTP.
