Reed began his career in the financial services industry as an institutional fixed income broker with Crews & Associates in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. After just over a year as a broker, he accepted a position on the Trading Desk at Simmons First National Bank, where he eventually became the Head Trader overseeing Municipal, Corporate, and Mortgage Trading Operations. He also revived the Bank’s Municipal Underwriting Desk and began bringing issues that raised money for rural school districts while also improving the firm’s bottom line.
With his experience in fixed income trading, compliance and operations, annuities, and financial planning, he is able to look at cases from various different angles. Reed takes pride in being able to isolate unique opportunities for our high net worth clientele using an outside-of-the-box way of thinking. He specializes in reviewing existing financial plans, developing comprehensive financial and situational plans designed to help optimize client’s overall financial position and legacy.
He is active in his local community, and participates in various philanthropic causes – including, but not limited to: Fruitful Field, Loaves & Fishes, and Habitat for Humanity. He is an avid golfer, food enthusiast, and loves to travel.
