Options Trading

Baird's Options Trading desk works directly with institutional clients to develop specific options strategies that seek to hedge long stock positions, generate income to enhance existing positions, or create asymmetric return profiles. Drawing on Baird's industry-leading equity research, our seasoned team creates tailored options strategies that help implement your unique investment ideas.

Our traders execute across all listed option exchanges, enabling us to provide the comprehensive coverage and extensive capabilities our clients demand. We work directly with you to create a customized strategy based on your fundamental views and desired risk profile. And because Baird does not operate a proprietary trading desk, the sole focus of our relationship is to enhance your performance.


For additional information, please contact Baird or visit the Options Clearing Corporation website for a copy of the disclosure document titled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Options are not suitable for all investors, as strategies are complex and inherently exhibit a high degree of risk. All risks must be considered carefully before implementing any strategies.
