RBC Capital Markets Convenes Municipal Finance Leaders At Industry's First-Ever Floating Rate Notes-Focused Municipal Market Conference

The second panel, titled "The Role of FRNs in Municipal Debt Programs," allowed issuers in the market to offer their own perspectives on the trend. John Puig, RBC Capital Markets' Managing Director, Municipal Finance, moderated the panel, which included:

  • Nikolaus Grieshaber, Chief Financial Officer, Pennsylvania Turnpike
  • Carol Kostik, Deputy Comptroller for Public Finance, Office of the New York City Comptroller
  • Katherine McManus, Deputy General Counsel Finance, New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority
  • Donna Manuelli, Chief Financial Officer, New Jersey Turnpike Authority

The issuer panelists discussed how the municipal market has matured to such a degree that there is now a much larger investor base than there was previously and, as a result, the pricing in the market has become a lot more efficient, allowing issuers to gain floating rate exposure at a cost-effective price.

RBC's Municipal Markets group has underwritten more than $4 billion in FRNs since 2012 and is ranked as the top issuer of the debt for both 2012 and 2013.
