An experienced banking team rooted in Iowa and committed to public finance in the Midwest.

Our Iowa bankers provide a broad range of advisory and financing services. Whether you are issuing general obligation or revenue debt, special assessment or interim notes, our public finance bankers know the issues and can help you finance your project at a competitive price.

We have the experience to guide municipal issuers through capital projects your community needs such as street or building improvements, water or sewer infrastructure or other economic development projects, including Tax Increment Financing (TIF), public-private partnerships and business incentives. With local knowledge, our team lives in and around the communities where we do business, knows the state regulations and financial markets, and works regularly with third parties in the public finance community.

As one of the leading new issue underwriters nationally, our team understands municipalities, enabling us to better structure, price and sell bonds. Offering a full service platform, we provide service beyond the transaction. Our clients have a consistent point of contact with decades of experience at the table every day, not just through the timeline for a particular bond issue.

Combining municipal advisory, placement agent and underwriting expertise, we offer clients a comprehensive range of services. Our direct and frequent market participation allows us to provide our clients with superior market information while our strong relationships with local and regional banking institutions can provide unique opportunities when it comes to placement agency.
