There is almost no limit to the investment choices available to you through Wayne Hummer Investments.
Our Financial Advisors have virtually unconstrained access to the world of investments to select securities that are best for you. From international and domestic equities and ADRs, taxable and tax-free fixed income issues, ETFs, mutual funds, to more sophisticated investments such as structured products, futures and options, REITs, and Unit Investment Trusts, we open the door to the world of investing.
Through our clearing firm, First Clearing—an affiliate of Wells Fargo & Company—our Financial Advisors can bring to bear the power of world-class research and provide access to many sophisticated fee-based investment programs.
From separately managed accounts to mutual fund wrap programs and custom-tailored portfolios, our Advisors can provide you with virtually any type of managed money program. More importantly, many of these investment programs are run by some of the most respected management firms in the world, such as BlackRock, Prudential, Deutsche Bank, and many others. In addition, our affiliate, Great Lakes Advisors, offers institutional-quality managed money services with the added benefit of providing clients with direct access to the portfolio managers behind the investments.
In order to offer you competitive access to fixed income investments, we have our own Fixed Income Trading Desk, centrally located in our downtown Chicago headquarters. Our Financial Advisors work closely with these specialists to offer you access to a broad offering of municipal, corporate, mortgage-backed, and government bonds. Whether you are interested in an individual security for yield, or want an entire portfolio, our seasoned bond experts can create custom solutions to meet all of your fixed income needs.
To help put your cash to work, you can take advantage of our Insured Bank Deposit™ Program. This special deposit product is available only through our parent company—Wintrust Financial Corporation—and comes with competitive rates, FDIC insurance up to $3.75 million, and immediate liquidity.
