Course: Thousands of municipalities globally issue debt for general purposes or specific projects. Unlike corporate debt issuers, however, municipal issuers are not as transparent. Identifying and measuring the risk of municipal debt is much more challenging.

This course is interactive and will include a presentation, case studies, exercise, and relevant articles for discussion to illustrate mechanics and risks of municipal debt.

After this course, participants will be able to:

  • Compare differences between municipal debt, sovereign and corporate debt
  • Identify different types of municipal debt
  • Create a framework to identify potential red flags in municipalities' finances
  • Compare and contrast advantages and risks of investing in municipal bond (munis)
