  • Debt Management and Bond Issuance

    NW Financial is one of the Northeast’s leading independent financial advisory service organizations.  We have dedicated ourselves to one primary function: to assure that our clients pursue the most appropriate financing strategies at the best possible terms.

    NW Financial has provided financial advisory services on more than $50 billion of bonds including fixed and variable rate, new money and refunding, in areas including general obligation, revenue, annual appropriation, education, transportation, toll/turnpike, mass transit, parking, housing, water utilities and conduit issuers. NW Financial serves a wide array of issuers, from small towns and cities to major metropolitan cities and counties to regional issuers to states and state agencies.

    Our financial advisory capabilities and services include: developing, managing and implementing long term financial plans; analyzing the impact of capital plans on debt management and operational budgets; assisting in the conceptual development of a financing; developing cash flow models of the transaction; participating in the preparation of disclosure documents; preparing financing packages for rating agencies or insurers; reviewing and commenting on legal documentation; conducting a bidding process for a public sale; assisting in the pricing of bonds on a negotiated basis; and coordinating the closing process.

    In financing projects, we have utilized both traditional forms of financing and more creative methods that have earned us numerous industry awards. These include:

    Along with the firm’s financial advisory practice, NW Financial has a trading desk through its affiliate firm, NW Capital Markets which provides underwriting services to governments in connection with the issuance of bonds. Although NW does not and cannot provide both underwriting and financial advisory services on the same transaction, the trading desk gives the NW professional staff the advantage of having immediate and accurate market data without having to rely on other underwriting firms.

    The underwriting capability of the firm requires that the professional staff carry and maintain the securities licenses needed to buy and sell securities. And, because the firm does underwrite securities, we are regulated by the SEC and MSRB. This additional layer of regulation provides more security to the client.
