Georgia Education Finance

Committed to education in Georgia.

Our Georgia Public Finance team has more K-12 School District experience than all other firms in the state combined. More importantly, however, we have been able to cultivate strong relationships that have allowed us to develop creative ideas and solutions to many of our clients’ financing needs. We pride ourselves on providing top-notch investment banking services and the lowest possible borrowing cost to each Georgia school district that we have the privilege of working with. Backed by the strength of Raymond James’ statewide and national distribution capabilities, our municipal finance underwriting team has placed thousands of Georgia school bonds in the hands of Tier 1, 2, 3 and retail investors. Raymond James is consistently ranked as a top underwriter both nationally and within the state of Georgia.*
