A Muni Market Recovery Outlook with Ashton Goodfield & James Dearborn, DWS

What you'll learn:

Our market continues to show signs of recovery, but recent events have still introduced lasting fundamental challenges for municipalities across the country. There’s no single playbook to help in this situation, and many issuers are searching for creative solutions.

What information should issuers currently be disclosing? How much data do investors really need right now? How are other issuers responding to buy-side demands?

Join Ashton Goodfield and James Dearborn, DWS, to walk through #muniland’s comeback in June and hear how their investment decisions will continue evolving throughout 2020.

• How municipalities that want to issue this year can best demonstrate their financial strengths
