With Irwin and Buzzy Geduld, John spearheaded its expansion into the third-largest Nasdaq market maker in the country. After the sale of the firm to Merrill Lynch in 2000, he devoted himself to R.M. Smythe & Co., the family auction firm dealing in antique stocks and bonds, bank notes, coins and autographs. After the stock market crash of 1987, John founded the Museum of American Finance to enhance public understanding of the capital markets.
