What We Do
BLX is a registered municipal advisor providing a full range of independent financial advisory services to tax-exempt entities, including both the government and non-profit 501(c)(3) sectors.
Securing tax-exempt financing is a challenging and continually changing process for borrowers who seek to finance new projects or refinance existing debt. Capital planning and transaction management demand a solid understanding of complex technical and market issues. As an experienced financial advisor, BLX provides an independent perspective on the choices and decisions which tax-exempt borrowers make as they prepare for a bond issue. On advisory engagements, we operate exclusively as the borrower’s independent representative, and our obligation is to provide information and advice which services our client’s best interest in the planning and execution of a bond transaction.
