Letter from the CEO & Managing Editor
Fall 2023

For our fall issue we're thrilled to feature Natalie Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Mesirow in a wide ranging discussion on business conditions, Mesirow's structure, their focus on developing talent, technology challenges, and more. Natalie is the first female CEO in Mesirow's 85 year history and we're honored to feature her in Fixed Income Insights and Mesirow as a long-standing member of BDA. In addition to the transcript of the discussion we also embedded the audio to the digital version of Fixed Income Insights.
As in past issues, the Fall issue is packed with good content with consistent chapters on technology, market structure, muni and taxable markets, politics, the BDA policy agenda and BDA events.
Our new “Off the Desk” section this quarter features the new Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Nashville, TN. Definitely a property the BDA is looking at for future industry events.
This magazine - in both digital and print versions - extends our presence and is an extension of the BDA’s advocacy for member firms. The BDA continues to be the only DC based trade association solely focused on the bond markets. It is this focus combined with aggressive advocacy that sets us apart with tangibly beneficial outcomes for our members. Please find more information on our 2022 successes and our 2023 focus in the BDA Advocacy section.
It is our membership that drives the BDA’s success and is reflected through the content on these pages, provided by industry leadership from Wall Street to Main Street. A big thank you to the many contributors to this issue including our many advertisers.
We value all feedback so please let us know what you think of this issue and of Fixed Income Insights generally.
Thank you for your engagement and support and helping to ensure the BDA is a strong, focused advocate for the U.S. bond markets.
Mike Nicholas CEO, Bond Dealers of America
