Smith's High Yield Municipal Bond Conference 2023

October 24-26, 2023

Locke Lord is a proud sponsor of Smith's High Yield Municipal Bond Conference held on October 24-26, 2023  in Greenwich, CT. Adrienne Walker will speak during a session titled, “Charter Schools: Comparing Start-Ups to Established Schools and the Charter School Environment without COVID Funding” on October 25 at 9:00am ET.

The High Yield Municipal Bond market is proud to finance charter school bonds that are closing the opportunity gap, delivering an excellent education and providing opportunities to diversify leadership and teaching. The Charter Schools Program (CSP) is the nation’s only source of dedicated federal funding to support the creation, expansion, and replication of public charter schools. Since FY2019, the CSP has been flat funded at $440 million. The CSP amounts to less than 1% of federal spending on K-12 education, however, it has a substantial impact on the communities where charter schools operate. This year’s program jump starts with a discussion comparing start-ups to established Charter Schools. The panel will also discuss the Charter School environment without COVID funds.

Smith's High Yield Municipal Bond Conference will take a look at specific sectors like charter schools, higher education, hospitals, senior living and fallen angels. Skyrocketing inflation and soaring interest rates have sent High Yield issuers into hiding. And that's okay. Because, Municipal Bond Investors have suffered the shock and awe from the spike in rates.
