First Southern, LLC
First Southern is a boutique financial services company that provides a broad spectrum of investment banking and brokerage services to issuers, individuals and institutional clients throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Commitment to excellence is the firm’s founding principle. At First Southern, we cultivate long-term relationships and strive to provide the best service possible to help clients achieve their financial objectives and needs.
The firm’s cornerstone business is trading fixed income securities, primarily in the secondary market. Tracing its humble roots in tax-exempt and taxable municipal credit, First Southern has built an infrastructure and approach that is well-suited to meeting the investment and portfolio needs of both institutional and individual investors. While the firm is focused on municipal bonds, we are a full-service broker-dealer and offer a wide variety of financial products. We strive to provide the best possible execution services for all clients. The result is a culture of service and accessibility, with institutional level support.
Our associates are seasoned, fixed income professionals with a broad array of resources to help clients manage and transfer their wealth. We stand out from our competitors by being one of the few research-oriented municipal bond firms. Our extensive due diligence helps us identify special situations that are often overlooked by most market participants.
First Southern is a registered broker-dealer with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Clearing and custody services are provided by Pershing, LLC.
