Recent defaults, bankruptcies and fiscal challenges have called into question the traditional stability and creditworthiness of municipal bonds, bringing the market under heightened scrutiny by regulators. Since 2010, the SEC Public Finance Unit has taken a bevy of enforcement actions concerning municipal issues, using novel techniques, which signals an aggressive stance towards addressing perceived misconduct. Municipal bond issuers and officials and regulated actors, such as underwriters and municipal advisers, should be aware of the new regulatory environment and adopt appropriate policies and practices.
In this live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the increased regulatory scrutiny and enforcement and explain how market participants can take steps to maximize opportunities and minimize risks.
- Historical Trends in the Municipal Bond Market
- Current Developments and Updates
- Key Issues and Challenges Facing the Market
- Current Risks and Opportunities
- Litigation, Regulatory Scrutiny and Enforcement
- Best Practices to Mitigate Risk
