Advance Refunding Calculator

The Bond Buyer and Andrew Kalotay Associates jointly offer online subscribers a refunding calculator designed to help issuers make decisions related to advance refunding deals by factoring in the value of the call option embedded in their existing deals. Based on Kalotay's proprietary valuation algorithms and supported by data from Mergent Technologies and Municipal Market Advisors, the calculator allows issuers or their professional advisors to retrieve real bonds, and evaluate the attractiveness of various refunding scenarios.

The Advance Refunding Calculator is available only to subscribers and users with active trials. Log in or sign up for a trial below to access the calculator.

He also discussed the stability of munis versus other asset classes, muni bond fund inflows versus money market fund outflows, muni exchange traded funds, and what to expect in the last quarter the year.
