- New Durham office opening as part of continued strategic expansion

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BrownstoneInvestment Group (“Brownstone”) today announced the opening of its fourth office, which is located in Durham, North Carolina, capping off the Firm’s celebration of its fifteenth year of operations. Brownstone today also announced a new hire in New York, Bobby Bowden, who brings with him a high level of experience as the former Head of Credit Trading at FTN Financial. Mr. Bowden will focus on trading the debt issued within the bank, finance, and insurance sectors.

“Durham is in a key financial region in the South and we’re looking forward to deepening our relationships with the local investor community,” said Douglas Lowey, Brownstone President and CEO. “This latest office opening demonstrates again the firm’s unique strength in understanding the geographic-specific needs of regional investors.”

Brownstone has marked its fifteenth anniversary with the continued implementation of its strategic growth plan, including the launch of new municipal and emerging markets trading strategies, an expansion to the West Coast, and the launch of its Advisor Services unit. Brownstone’s smart growth strategy emphasizes adding new trading services and asset classes to its expertise, as well as expansion to targeted areas where the Firm can better leverage the Brownstone brand to investors.

“Brownstone has thrived thanks to our investments in technology and the strong partnerships we have with our counterparties,” said Lowey. “Our relationships with the buy- and sell-side, broad product knowledge, and high-level of intuitive consulting and pricing differentiate us from others, enabling us to prosper in what others perceive to be a challenging fixed income market.”

Evolving with the market

When it was founded in 1998, Brownstone filled a specific niche in the fixed income space by providing efficient retail distribution of high-yield corporate bonds to regional dealers. As the fixed income marketplace has evolved over the past 15 years, Brownstone has kept pace by delivering depth of liquidity, accessibility and a wide range of fixed income products in unique ways that investors have come to appreciate.

Since its founding, Brownstone has grown from a single office in New York serving domestic regional broker-dealers to a company with more than 40 professionals offering investment grade, emerging markets, distressed corporate, and municipal fixed income expertise globally. As the Firm has evolved over the years, its leadership has remained solid and steady, with Founding Principals Douglas Lowey and Barret Naylor, along with Partner and Head of Trading Jon Sablowsky, leading the Firm.
