Public Finance and Municipal Bond Underwriting Solutions for Investment Banks

We empower bankers through exhaustive research and analytics support across the municipal bond underwriting and public finance advisory services value chain

Rising demand for taxable municipal income bonds over the last six quarters despite the COVID-19 pandemic led to 1H20 issuances soaring to 3x the 2019 equivalent. Taxable municipal income bonds not only offer flexibility to issuers on the use of proceeds but also generate higher yields despite having top ratings and much lower default rates, making them an attractive buy for investors.

In the current market environment, this growing segment, especially general obligation bonds, water and sewer bonds and higher education bonds (which demonstrated resilience amid the COVID-19 pandemic), among others, present significant opportunities to underwriting bankers in participating to participate in and facilitate the bond-sale process.
