Dysfunction and Distress in Illinois: A Tale of Caution and Opportunity

Session Speakers
Session Description

Why Attend
Hear an update on the current credit situation in Illinois, and gain insights that will help you assess the quality of municipal bond managers’ research capabilities.

Session Description
Was the credit distress in Illinois clearly visible before it made national headlines? Definitely. Is your municipal bond manager equipped to have seen the signs? Maybe. States are typically creditworthy and stable sources of muni bonds, but the credit debacle in Illinois highlights how a combination of factors — namely, economic downturns, funding priorities, laws, tax systems, and governance — can derail state credit quality and trickle down, creating opportunities and potholes for local governments. Two subject-matter experts will explain:

  • The key drivers that added short-term and long-term pressures on Illinois
  • How government dysfunction led to a fiscal management crisis 
  • A muni credit research approach that enables investors to find value and avoid issues
