Take a Closer Look

At National Alliance there are many working parts to our wheel, and we pride ourselves on the collective work of our specialized traders. Our professionals have experienced various economic and market cycles and share their product expertise with clients across the country. Through the years, we have participated in the evolution of the mortgage markets and understand the performance characteristics, various intricacies, and risk factors of related securities during different economic climates. We have worked through periods of rapid growth and declines within the housing sector, experienced asset “booms” and “bubbles” and related credit crises, and navigated economic downturns and eventual recoveries. Through these varied environments, we have sought and found opportunities to expose value in the fixed income markets and have strived to help our clients find the fixed income investments that most fit their needs.
