      1. Utilities

        A powerful force in utilities financing.

        The public finance professionals at Raymond James have extensive experience in the underwriting of utility bonds, both on a negotiated basis and at competitive sale. In fact, we were involved in the first-ever bond issue by a public utility for the prepayment of electricity. This $1.5 billion bond issue was executed by the city of Memphis to purchase electricity over a 15-year period at a discount from Tennessee Valley Authority, the city’s sole supplier.

        In 2018, Raymond James ranked as the nation’s second-leading underwriter of water/sewer/gas transactions, senior managing 18 negotiated issues with a total par amount of nearly $750 million.*
