Spanish translation:la llamada "alphabet house" (las sociedades de bolsa importantes)
Explanation:
Hello!

As you can see from the links alphabet house refers to a specific group of brokers in the U.S. I would leave it in English or go for the translation above in parentheses.

1) alphabet houses, which consisted of the large, predominantly U.S.-based national brokers that generated at least $500 million of revenue

alphabet broker (alphabet house)
[A167]. alphabet broker (alphabet house). Slang for any of several large brokers occasionally referred to by initials derived from their names.

Best of luck,

julie
