Join your colleagues at the Downstate Chapter joint Southern & Southwestern Regions Holiday Luncheon!  Participants will hear discussion on Making the Most of Your Debt Management Policy.

Having a sound debt management policy is an integral component to an issuer’s approach to bond financing. It’s also, therefore, important to a rating agency’s review of an issuer’s credit profile. This session will highlight the purpose and key components of a sound debt management policy, and it will provide a market update on the municipal bond market.
