Fixed Income Activities The company carries inventories of taxable and tax-exempt securities to facilitate institutional sales activities. The company trades both taxable and tax-exempt fixed income securities primarily for the purpose of facilitating such sales. The taxable and tax-exempt fixed income traders purchase and sell corporate, municipal, government, government agency, and mortgage-backed bonds, asset-backed securities, preferred stock, and certificates of deposit from and to the company’s clients or other dealers.
