Working closely with your board and senior management we can help you develop a strategic plan that mitigates risk, achieves objectives, maximizes earnings and enhances stakeholder value.


Balance Sheet Management

Manage Risk & Enhance Profitability

Whether you seek in-depth portfolio analysis, whole loan purchasing or selling, or efficient execution of fixed income securities trades, we match our seasoned capabilities to your needs.

Securities Portfolio

Our unique analytical, client-first approach to your securities portfolio known as SMART helps formulate strategies based on the holistic needs of each individual client. We consider such factors as liquidity, yield, credit and interest rate risk, and overall balance sheet composition to deliver and implement customized recommendations using a differentiated execution model.

Whole Loan Transactions

Using the intelligence we track across more than 1000 depository institution relationships, we can help you acquire or sell loans that compliment your desired loan portfolio allocation.

Proprietary Analytics

By helping our clients understand the risk components within their portfolio, and with each potential trade, we are able to make recommendations that are in sync with management’s overall strategy and the intended role of the securities portfolio.
