This webinar is presented in anticipation of the 6th annual Municipal Finance Conference, to be held at Brookings on July 17-18, 2017.
Financial disclosure was once an arcane, esoteric, and mostly overlooked part of the municipal securities market. It’s now a central concern for issuers, investors, and regulators as the SEC has stepped up its enforcement efforts with its “voluntary” Municipal Continuing Disclosure Initiative and two Miami officials have been convicted of securities fraud. The MSRB, FINRA, U.S. Treasury, GASB, and other regulatory groups have launched parallel efforts within their own authority to promote better financial disclosure. There also are efforts in the private sector aimed at making relevant information more widely available.
Join us on January 24 for a presentation by Justin Marlowe (Evans School of Public Policy & Governance, University of Washington), Stephen Winterstein (chief municipal fixed income strategist at Wilmington Trust), and Michele Mark Levine (deputy comptroller for accountancy for the City of New York) will kick off what we hope will be a lively conversation.
