BLX Group is registered with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) as a municipal advisor. We specialize in serving public finance related entities by providing compliance consulting, and municipal advisory services. We serve the unique needs of the public sector and not-for-profit entities (e.g. health care, higher education, and cultural institutions). Our full complement of comprehensive financial advisory services include arbitrage compliance, debt strategy, bond pricing review and analysis, post-issuance compliance, structured products, sustainable finance, swap advisory and monitoring and more.
Since our beginnings in 1989 as Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe’s Financial Services group, our firm has evolved and grown. In 2000 we became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Orrick under the Bond Logistix name. In 2010 we shortened our name to BLX Group. Today we are a nationwide network of professionals with offices in Los Angeles, Dallas, Phoenix, and New York, and we remain wholly-owned by Orrick.
Through our extensive public finance and regulatory knowledge, we assist municipalities across the country in evaluating key strategies, and implementing solutions for their tax-exempt transactions. Our extensive participation in designing new products and platforms for the public finance industry, coupled with our comprehensive knowledge of available opportunities, helps us maximize the economics of each transaction.
We have the experience, resources and knowledge to assist clients with their arbitrage rebate, post-issuance compliance, continuing disclosure, financial advisory, swap advisory, and sustainable finance needs. It’s all encompassing. And all in one place: BLX.
