FTN Financial is rooted in a tireless commitment to provide the best products, people, and services. Nowhere is that more apparent that in our Fixed Income Sales and Trading efforts. FTN Financial is a capital markets leader in fixed income sales, trading, and strategies, with average trading volumes in excess of $5 billion per day.
We have 27 offices worldwide. The strength of FTN Financial’s platform is its extensive fixed income distribution network of over 5,500 institutional customers across the globe, including approximately 50% of all U.S. banks with portfolios over one hundred million dollars. Supported by a total capital of more than $2.5 billion, we are consistently among the top dealers underwriting U.S. agency long-term debt and discount notes.
Our trading and underwriting capability is the heart of FTN Financial. It’s how we originally built our reputation, and it’s still how we serve thousands of customers around the world today. Recently, FTN Financial has continued expansion in the general market municipal bond sector with the addition of a public finance department. The establishment of the public finance department serves to complement FTN Financial’s municipal trading and competitive underwriting capabilities.
From your dedicated sales representative to our back office and portfolio accounting teams, every single member of the FTN Financial team is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals.
Our trading desks are staffed by highly experienced, long-tenured traders. We have one of the highest trader-to-sales ratios in the country, and this matters because we’re always listening to you. Your sales representative works hand in hand with our traders to ensure we have the right products, at the right price, at the right time to meet your expectations.
Because our customer relationships include both bank and non-depository customers, we understand the needs of a wide variety of financial institutions and can recommend the right opportunities for you.
