Overall Ranking (NA)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Founded in 1998 by Bill Hambrecht, WR Hambrecht + Co is a financial services firm committed to using technology and auction processes to provide open and fair access to financial markets for all its clients. The firm's impartial auctions have dramatically changed the traditional investment banking landscape by allowing the market to determine pricing and allocations.

The OpenIPO(r) auction, for example, levels the playing field in initial public offerings, allowing individuals and institutional investors to bid online for shares of an IPO. All investors end up paying the same price - a price determined by the auction. The OpenBook(r) auction for corporate bonds, is an online system that offers transparent, real-time price discovery. OpenFollowOn(r) auction extends the transparency and real-time price discovery of the OpenBook auction to follow-on equity offerings allowing interactive bidding and gives investors a view into the book as it builds.

WR Hambrecht + Co continues to identify markets where auctions will benefit investors and issuers. We provide underwriting and advisory services for technology and emerging growth companies, as well as technology driven institutional agency brokerage and a fully electronic retail brokerage platform for individual investors.

WR Hambrecht + Co is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.
