Celebrating the 18th anniversary of IBAT’s partnership and endorsement of The Baker Group in January 2011!
We are especially proud of Texas’ Baker office group including John Bloss, Mike Mackey, Hali Amezquita and Josh Swanson.
Most brokerage firms deal with a wide variety of clients, but Baker deals predominately with community-based financial institutions. Client investment strategies are therefore designed to meet the needs of bankers with respect to broad risk management and regulatory issues.
Strategic objectives for the bond portfolio are long-term in nature and involve consistent management of cash flows, for example, rather than a shorter-term focus on potentially riskier bonds with high yield.
The Baker philosophy emphasizes the idea that a bank is a system of interrelated parts, and that view is reflected in the services provided. We appreciate your support of The Baker Group and IBAT’s involvement in their programs.
As we celebrate the anniversary of this remarkable relationship for IBAT and its membership, we extend our best wishes for your continued success as a committed community banker.
