Agenda | Slides

After nearly a decade in a historically low interest rate environment, the Federal Reserve’s rapid interest rate increases and the growing liquidity concerns in the market have created a challenging borrowing climate. While there are reasons to believe that interest rates may be nearing a short-term peak, municipal issuers continue to face uncertainty about when more favorable market conditions for debt issuance will return. At the same time, the need to finance critical projects persists. This program will feature market professionals and experienced municipal issuers who will explore a variety of strategies employed before, during, and after issuance that can be used to manage borrowing costs, amidst high interest rates and looming market uncertainty.
