The Federal Reserve actions to drive down inflation, the prospect of COVID revenues running dry, societal shifts that have fundamentally modified economies, enormous effect on global trade of geopolitical instability, and increasing probability of a recession are testing issuers in similar and distinctive ways. This program will explore how these challenges and others are affecting the planning of issuers in different sectors, how issuers are using debt to manage these challenges, and how their financing approaches are changing to mitigate the risks of the extraordinary economic conditions.

Event Details and Slides

Municipalities have been using debt financing as a tool to build their communities for over a century and throughout this history debt issuance has grown and changed to facilitate the provision of a variety of public benefits. Issuers and investors of municipal debt must consider market conditions, the amount and purpose of the debt, an agency’s credit, as well as many other variables. This variability coupled with so many people involved in the process, creates an environment where members of the issuance team understand their role, but may not understand the process as a whole. Join CDIAC and expert faculty during this three-day seminar on the most essential information needed to understand municipal debt in California.
