8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Sherman Hall, Hassenfeld Conference Center
This one-day conference will explore research on recent developments in municipal credit markets – markets which have seen extreme volatility and rapid change over the past few years. This volatility has included the decline of the financial guarantors, stress in state and local budgets, the collapse of the auction-rate securities market, and some large and focal recent municipal defaults.
The conference will explore recent research related to liquidity in municipal credit markets, the role of financial guarantors, the role of derivatives, and the causes and resolution of municipal distress. The focus of the conference will be on bringing together academics, practitioners, regulators and issuers together to discuss the changing state of municipal capital markets and how to analyze, address, and adapt to the changing landscape.
