As a trusted advisor to public agencies, we have a proven record of structuring and executing derivative transactions on behalf of our clients. Our public finance team has deep experience working with straightforward interest rate swaps, as well as transactions involving more complex optionality.
Our firm does not act as a counterparty in derivative transactions; rather, we act solely as an advocate for our clients in an advisory role. Our philosophy revolves around using the derivative market only when our clients’ needs cannot be addressed in traditional capital markets. Based on need and suitability, we present clients with detailed information regarding the pros and cons of the available derivative structures.
