Financial Strength

Baird is strong, profitable, and expanding our global reach and capabilities to best meet clients’ needs. Because we’re employee-owned, we have a huge stake in making sure we do things right. This drives the way we’ve structured, grown and continue to run our firm:

Baird Stock 10 Year Relative Performance

  • Five core businesses balance our sources of revenue and broaden our capabilities for clients.
  • We’ve grown in times when many competitors were restructuring or downsizing.
  • Our net capital is well in excess of regulatory requirements.
  • We have been conservative in our use of debt and have significant unused bank commitments.
  • Baird offers client account protection in excess of SIPC limits through a special Lloyd’s of London insurance policy.

Of course, our real strength comes from the trust and confidence our clients place in us, best exemplified by the more than $100 billion in assets they have entrusted to us.
