Public Finance

Public Finance works directly with municipal issuers throughout the Midwest and Southeast to structure and bring to market their financings. Hilliard Lyons’ Public Finance bankers provide that service in two areas: managing a negotiated issue and formally selling the offering to investors and as a financial advisor for competitively bid issues.

Since 2010, Hilliard Lyons has senior managed over $2.7 billion in offerings, $1.5 billion of which are negotiated, and served as a financial advisor for over $5 billion in offerings. Our clients include the Louisville Arena Authority (KFC Yum! Center), State of Illinois, University of Kentucky, City of Evansville, Indiana, and the Louisville Metro Sewer District.  Over the past 5 years, Hilliard Lyons ranks number one as financial advisor in total volume of bond issues in Kentucky.
