State of California

California ranks as the #1 state for new issuance, with a growing population, an expansive municipal infrastructure and a recently improved credit rating—all adding up to opportunities for savvy capital markets players.

The state is known for its pioneering financing techniques and The Bond Buyer's California Public Finance Conference is the place where the state's municipal finance leaders—from public sector issuers to investors, investment bankers, and attorneys—meet to share best practices and craft strategies for building a sustainable fiscal future. Join The Golden State's policy makers and dealmakers, October 8-10 in San Diego to learn their cutting-edge innovations.

This year's agenda will match the usual roster of expert speakers discussing the economy with an increased focus on issuers speaking directly to their peers, sharing their best practices and lessons learned in the current market and budgetary environment. Sessions include:

  • Refundings on Redevelopment/Successor Agencies
  • Inside Direct Lending
  • Financial Sustainability
  • Hedge Funds: Investing in Today’s Market Resurgence of Bond Insurance
  • The Nexus of Climate Change and Public Finance
  • Urban vs. Agricultural Water Needs

The Bond Buyer’s California Public Finance Conference is the largest, most comprehensive, event of its kind, regularly drawing more than 700 public-sector finance officers, institutional investors, rating agency analysts, underwriters, attorneys and other professionals.

The conference features a host of networking opportunities—more than 14 hours in all—including refreshment breaks, cocktail receptions, dinners, a community service event and our annual golf outing. You’ll have plenty of time to meet and connect with senior issuers and leading municipal finance professionals.

The Bond Buyer’s California Public Finance Conference is your best opportunity to gain the information and best practices you need to deal with the challenges facing you in the municipal bond market.
