Balance sheet management is vital for every banker, and it must be monitored diligently. The Fixed-Income team at FIG Partners is committed to bringing our clients customized investment solutions that are informed by deep market intelligence.

Unlike many other firms, FIG does not maintain an inventory of securities that need to be moved, therefore our focus can be on advising our clients as though their balance sheet were our own.

FIG’s Whole Loan Trading team works with client portfolios across the spectrum of bank originated consumer and commercial loan products, matching buyers and sellers with loan portfolios that best fit their balance sheet specifications and concentrations.

  • Since inception in 2010, Fixed-Income Debt Capital Markets has transacted more than $3.5 billion in bond trades with 215+ clients. Our trading experience in MBS, Municipals, Corporates, CMBS, RMBS, ABS, CDOs, CLOs, and TRUPs extends into 75+ broker/dealer trading desks.
  • The FIG team has assisted Banks & Investors in all 28 rounds of the TARP primary auctions, trading more than $200 million in 276 TARP positions, in primary auctions and secondary trading. FIG has been lead or co-manager for about $362 Million of debt issuance to banks that have ranged in size from $400 million to $8 billion in assets.
