About Baker

“Bank managements needed an approach that focused on the total bank; and that approach became known as asset/liability management.”
— Dr. James V. Baker, Jr. Asset/Liability Management 1981

The Baker Group has been a trusted financial partner helping community financial institutions improve their decision-making, interest rate risk management, and investment portfolio performance since 1979.

In 1981, founder James V. Baker revolutionized financial risk management with his publication, Asset/Liability Management. In his best-selling book, Dr. Baker recommended integrating interest rate risk and investment portfolio management with balance sheet management to better monitor and measure interest rate risk and improve overall performance. By applying Baker’s “total bank” approach, community financial institutions were able to adapt to the changing market throughout the years.

Today, The Baker Group is one of the nation’s largest independently owned securities firms specializing in investment portfolio and interest rate risk management for community financial institutions nationwide. After decades of industry service, The Baker Group continues to grow and adapt in order to better serve their financial partners.
