The Debt Capital Markets group is made up of several teams that each play an integral role in serving our clients.

The sales representatives, whether institutional or retail, are our front line for customer service. Our strategies and services team provide high-quality analysis and insight regarding current markets and unmatched experience in fixed-income trends. And as a privately owned brokerage firm, our traders offer the distinct advantage of quick response time and give our clients personal attention and direct access to products in a way that many big-box firms cannot.

The professional acumen of these groups has transformed a regional footprint into a national presence.


The Duncan-Williams Debt Capital Markets Strategies Group is a team of experienced financial analysts who have their finger on the pulse of current market trends.

Their areas of expertise cover portfolio management, total return, asset/liability management, municipal credit analysis, client education and evolving regulatory issues.

Duncan-Williams is built on an ability to provide clients exactly what they need. But our Strategies Group gives our clients more than what is simply needed. They understand the importance of “value added”.

  • We monitor client portfolios to determine if there are performance based opportunities.

  • We study markets in-depth to find new investment opportunities.

  • We host regular events to educate clients and help them understand more about their investments as well as new opportunities.
