COSTA MESA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Steve Baker has served in the financial services industry since 2005, beginning his career as a financial advisor for Smith Barney. Working with both clients and other advisors has given Steve the necessary skills to be a very successful wholesaler. As a wholesaler, he has primarily focused on alternative investments, private placements and mutual funds.
Steve joins SC Distributors from Highland Capital Management (“HCM”) where he was one of their top producing wholesalers. He covered the “Four Corners” territory (AZ, NM, CO, UT) where he was responsible for all marketing and sales activity for the mutual funds, DSTs, interval funds, non-traded BDC and REITs.
