Public Power Finance
George K. Baum & Company has experienced assisting public power issuers of all sizes, ranging from some of the largest issuers in the nation, such as the Intermountain Power Agency and Guam Power Authority, to numerous small local issuers. In addition to our underwriting and municipal advisory efforts, George K. Baum & Company is also active in supporting public power credits in the secondary market.
The members of George K. Baum & Company's Public Power Finance group gained their familiarity with public power issues through hands-on experience with local municipal electric agencies. We believe that the best way to provide service and support and to identify with our clients' needs and objectives is to maintain regional, full-service public finance offices close to our clients. It is this philosophy that has facilitated our understanding of the public power industry, particularly at local levels. We have provided services to a wide spectrum of public power issuers and possess substantial knowledge of the day-to-day workings of public power utilities. This experience is critical to achieving a successful financing, especially in this new era of deregulation.
