The firm hired by the Puerto Rico Oversight Board to investigate the past and present conditions of Puerto Rico’s debt is seeking input from the public.

As part of the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act, the board hired the firm Kobre & Kim to do the investigation in September 2017.

The board was appointed in 2016 to oversee Puerto Rico's fiscal management and restructuring of about $72 billion of debt. Among other things, the investigation will review Puerto Rico's debt issuance, disclosure, and selling practices, including its interpretation of Puerto Rico's constitutional debt limit.

Kobre & Kim is encouraging those who have information that may be relevant to the investigation to send it to Promesainvestigator@kobrekim.com.

“Please note that information you provide may become public or may be shared with various stakeholders interested in the independent investigator’s work,” Kobre & Kim stated. “If you have information that you believe requires confidentiality, you may contact the independent investigator using this same email address and ask to discuss the terms under which certain information may be treated confidentially.”
