August 22, 2017, 10:00 AM

Hilltop Securities Inc. (HTS) announced that Kenneth G. Friedrich has joined the firm as Senior Managing Director, Head of Fixed Income Capital Markets. Friedrich, who served as Head of Municipal Sales, Trading and Syndication for RBC Capital Markets (RBC) until June 2016, brings three decades of experience to his new role and will oversee all aspects of HTS’ fixed income sales, trading and syndication business which includes 15 offices in nine states from coast to coast. Mr. Friedrich will report to Robert W. Peterson, President and Chief Operating Officer of HTS.

“We are excited about Ken’s addition to the HilltopSecurities leadership team, as we expect that he will strengthen our taxable and municipal fixed income sales, trading and underwriting efforts across the country – with a particular focus on the middle markets,” said Peterson. “He brings the proven track record of success we believe that we need to achieve our goals, and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to strengthen and expand our capital markets business.”

“I am proud to join HilltopSecurities, which has built a strong reputation for client service excellence in both taxable and municipal fixed income and is a nationally recognized leader in the municipal finance business,” Friedrich said. “I believe that HilltopSecurities is ideally positioned to significantly grow its sales and trading presence across credit, MBS and municipals. I am also eager to help the firm continue to grow its senior-managed municipal origination presence to complement its market-leading financial advisory practice.”

Friedrich joins HTS from New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation where he served as Chief Financial Officer for the past year. He spent the majority of his career with RBC and its predecessor firm Dain Rauscher in New York, where he directly oversaw primary market pricing and distribution, as well as secondary trading and sales for long-term municipal securities. In addition, Friedrich served as Head of Municipal Institutional Sales and Head of Fixed-Income Middle Market Sales for RBC. Friedrich earned a Bachelor of Arts in economics from The American University in Washington, D.C.
