Comprised of fixed income and balance sheet specialists, the Financial Strategies Group is a vital component to First Empire Securities’ value-added services. In providing strategic support and insight to institutional investors, they help bridge the gap between investor and broker by demonstrating how the investment portfolio is interacting with the rest of the balance sheet.
Our financial strategists are equipped with our state-of-the-art proprietary analytics that can model virtually any investment scenario for a client, and immediately display potential changes side-by-side the original portfolio. Our Dynamic Portfolio Analysis (DPA) can show changes to overall performance of the portfolio and can help measure, monitor and manage the portfolio’s interest rate risk, liquidity risk and concentration risk.
Pershing offers safekeeping and clearing to First Empire Securities clients on a fully disclosed basis. Safekeeping services also feature Federal Reserve Discount Window support and a cash management sweep program.
