Investment Banking Services

Carty & Company is a market maker for municipal bonds.  We have a long history of participation in helping local governments such as cities, towns and counties, as well as states and political subdivisions raise capital for the benefit of their communities.  Carty & Company has extensive experience in both negotiated and competitive deals so our clients have exclusive first access to these bonds in the primary market.    


Negotiated Syndicate – In negotiated sales, municipal bonds are issued under an exclusive agreement with the underwriter through a proposal process.  These new issues are brought to the market by the underwriter only. 

Competitive Syndicate – In competitive sales, municipal bonds are issued to a syndicate through a competitive bidding process.  The securities are awarded to the lowest bidder (lowest expense to the issuer).
