Patersons Securities Ltd is a financial services firm based in Perth, Western Australia, with 10 offices throughout Australia. James Paterson founded the firm in 1903 as an accounting practice, and branched into stock trading in 1922. His 16-year-old son Colin joined the firm in 1929, and by the start of World War II was head of what had been renamed James W. Paterson and Son. Colin Paterson enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force during World War II, and his sister Mary ran the firm during the war. The firm was forced to exit accounting in 1950, but Colin used his accounting experience to branch out into investment banking. Colin Paterson retired in 1977, and soon afterward the firm incorporated as Paterson Securities. In 1985, it sold a half-interest to Ord Minnett, a subsidiary of J.P. Morgan, and changed its name to Paterson Ord Minnett. Under this name, it opened offices in outstate Western Australia in the 1990s. It resumed its old name in 2003 and expanded outside Western Australia for the first time, opening an office in Sydney. Within a few years, it opened offices in Canberra and Brisbane as well.
Patersons held the naming rights to Subiaco Oval, the Perth area's main sporting facility, between 2011 and 2014 inclusive. The naming rights to the stadium were subsequently taken over by real estate company The Domain Group.
