This webinar will discuss arbitrage opportunities in the context of the current market environment and the implications of the presence of positive arbitrage on debt and investment management strategies for public agencies. Speakers will comment on considerations for applying positive arbitrage as a potential cost-saving strategy when issuing or refinancing debt while mindfully complying with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requirements for arbitrage rebate and yield restriction. Speakers will also explore different debt structures that utilize positive arbitrage in the context of the rebate process, options to manage arbitrage allowances, the private use of government funds, and IRS audits.
