Foreign Investor Interest in the Muni Market

Field of Study: 
Economics

Intermediate
Description: 

The last two decades has seen a steady increase in the amount of municipal debt held by new and/or foreign investors. With high yields and historically low default rates, tax-exempt and taxable municipal bonds are often viewed as safe investments to European and Asian investors that have a tough time finding comparable yields in their own countries. This session will focus on how issuers can market their communities and investment opportunities to this steadily growing pool of investors.
