Virtual  |  Join us via Zoom

Each year since 1987, the NFMA has held the Introduction to Municipal Bond Credit Analysis. Though the pandemic has prevented the in-person presentation again this year, they have invited speakers to discuss eleven topics over three afternoons. This course is designed for new analysts, support and sales personnel, and has also been found worthwhile for seasoned analysts seeking to brush up on other sectors. 

The conference will feature a presentation by Mesirow's own Mark Whitaker regarding the impact of ratings and credit on pricing.
