At William Blair we recognize that our clients demand innovative, real-time solutions to address their financing objectives. Our quantitative resource team provides data and insight that assist our clients in achieving the lowest cost of capital.
Using proprietary software, we offer structuring solutions that highlight to investors why they should invest in our clients’ public projects and provide value-added information directly to clients so that they can assess their own debt’s value in the municipal market.
Swap Advisory Services: We have a proven record of structuring and executing derivative transactions on behalf of our clients in the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors. We do not act as a counterparty in derivative transactions; rather, we act solely as an advocate for our clients in a trusted advisory role.
Our philosophy revolves around using the derivatives market only when our clients’ needs cannot be addressed in the conventional capital markets. Based on need, expertise, and, most importantly, suitability, we present clients with detailed information regarding the use of a derivative structure so our client is fully educated on the proposed merits and risks associated with any structuring solution.
