Schwab Teams With Piper Jaffray To Expand Investor Access To New Issue Muni Bonds

Charles Schwab announced today that it has joined with Piper Jaffray, a leading investment bank and asset management firm, to provide clients access to Piper Jaffray’s new issue municipal bonds through Schwab’s BondSource® platform. Piper Jaffray is a top-ranked municipal bond underwriter in the U.S. with specialized expertise in a wide array of state and local markets.

“Our clients have asked for the ability to participate in geographically diverse new issue municipal bond offerings, and we’re thrilled that they’ll be able to access a wide variety of specialized, local deals now available through Piper Jaffray,” said Peter Crawford, Senior Vice President for Charles Schwab. “This agreement complements our existing new issue bond offering, helping give our clients the flexibility to add regional or local exposure to their bond portfolios.”

Schwab clients can view or place orders for new municipal bond issues on the BondSource platform and can visit the New Issue Calendar to view upcoming offerings and set customized alerts. In the twelve months ended on August 31, 2012, Schwab clients had access to over 930 new issue offerings, including access to nearly 600 new issue muni deals. The bonds available through Piper Jaffray complement the new issue municipal bonds already available to clients on Schwab’s BondSource platform through prior existing agreements.

The Schwab BondSource platform provides investors with broad access to new issue bonds and secondary offerings – via trading platforms, bond underwriters and dealers as well as Schwab’s own inventory. Product offerings include munis, corporates, CDs, Treasuries, agency bonds, and sub-investment grade bonds.

“We are excited to join with Charles Schwab to expand our distribution reach, providing their clients with significant new issue municipal opportunities and a broad range of secondary fixed income offerings,” said Brad Winges, Head of Fixed Income Services at Piper Jaffray.

Piper Jaffray has a leading public finance franchise and consistently ranks in the top tier of national underwriters. In 2011, Piper Jaffray ranked No. 2 nationally in number of Senior Managed Long-Term Negotiated Issues and ranked No. 7 in par value of Senior Managed Long-Term Competitive Issues. In 2011, Piper Jaffray acted as underwriter or financial advisor on 900 municipal bond transactions with an aggregate par value of $52 billion. Piper Jaffray continues its momentum in 2012 and year to date through September, it ranked No. 2 nationally in number of Senior Managed Long-Term Negotiated Issues and ranked No. 7 in par value of Senior Managed Long-Term Competitive Issues. 1
