Public Finance

Relationships. Ideas. Execution.

Better schools. Safe roads. Quality healthcare. Communities strive to provide a high quality of life for all citizens. And providing the financing solutions to get there is the goal of our dedicated public finance professionals.

Our Public Finance group has in-depth experience and expertise in providing financing solutions for a broad range of tax-exempt issues. We are a dedicated partner to clients across America, including those in state and local governments, airports, utilities, school districts, higher education and healthcare.

Located in 39 offices nationwide, our team of approximately 180 public finance professionals senior managed 461 negotiated and competitive issues in 2023 with a total par value of more than $15 billion. We consistently rank among the Top 5 underwriters of municipal bonds in the United States.*

But just like the clients we serve, our business is about more than numbers. It’s about people.

Relationships are the foundation of what we do. The enduring connections we make with our issuer clients, industry partners and communities inspire us to deliver innovative financing solutions – and enhance the quality of the lives we touch.
