Municipal Underwriting

The Baker Group has cultivated relationships with over 1,000 community financial institutions and institutional investors across the country. These institutions executed thousands of municipal bond trades totaling nearly $1.5 billion with The Baker Group in 2018.

The quality of our relationships and distribution has been the core driver in our success in becoming one of the nation’s top underwriters of Bank Qualified issues.

While these rankings demonstrate the strength of our relationships and our exceptional distribution capabilities, they also speak to the quality of our credit platform, our municipal trading capabilities, and our underwriting team. 

Consistently winning deals in the competitive marketplace requires an exacting level of market knowledge and expertise. Our team knows the Bank Qualified market inside and out, enabling us to strike the perfect balance between lower costs for issuers and fair market prices for buyers.

The Baker Group’s underwriting services include:

  • Competitive and negotiated underwriting
  • Access to a vast network of high-demand institutional investors
