Sales, Trading and Underwriting

Leveraging collective expertise and teamwork to find value for clients.

HJ Sims professionals have been seasoned over decades of market cycles to find unique opportunities for our institutional and RIA clients, including private placements and secondary market issues that are frequently overlooked by other firms.

While our sales, trading and credit analysis professionals are active in the secondary markets for all tax-exempt and taxable securities, we provide exclusive access to credits originated by HJ Sims bankers, who are nationally recognized for their leadership and expertise.

Sales expertise

Our institutional and RIA sales team is in constant dialogue with major, middle market and regional institutions including banks, insurance companies, fund managers and investment advisers. We treat our clients as long-term partners. In return, they appreciate our unique products and the liquidity support we provide.

These strong client relationships have developed over the course of many years and offer comprehensive distribution capabilities to our investment banking clients.  We are well positioned to accommodate increasing demands for our high yield expertise and reputation for exceptional service.

Trading excellence

Our traders have a rare understanding of relative value and a depth of knowledge that, day after day, delivers timely ideas and excellent execution to our clients. We are client-focused and handle every inquiry and portfolio as an individual.

Underwriting know-how

Our underwriters set competitive benchmarks for several of the industry’s non-rated bond sectors.  We offer timely market insight to our bankers and to our advisory and issuer clients in the process of formulating pricing and structures. In addition, we educate our institutional sales executives and retail income advisors on the special features of our public offerings and limited offerings.
