What We Do

Asset Management

Our nationally recognized fixed income and equity investment management teams offer disciplined investing and outstanding results and service to institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals through separate accounts and mutual funds. The teams provide opportunities for operations specialists, client service managers and investment analysts.

Asset Management provides services to Baird’s clients through our two product teams: Baird Advisors and Baird Investment Management. Both teams provide separately managed account capabilities to large institutional investors like pension funds, insurance companies, corporations and endowments. They also work with various intermediaries like registered investment advisers, banks and trust companies who use the family of mutual funds.

Baird Advisors

Baird Advisors is our institutional fixed income investment management team. Baird Advisors' structured fixed income management style combines a disciplined process of measuring and controlling portfolio risks with a time tested ability to add incremental, relative value.

Baird Investment Management (BIM)

BIM's investment approach emphasizes in-depth research to uncover high quality equity securities for long-term investment. Different portfolio teams focus on growth, mid-cap growth and small/mid-cap value investments. BIM also manages customized portfolios for high-net-worth individuals.
