New transparency will expand reach of bond sales with investors
DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 3, 2022 / The University of North Texas System (the System) announces a partnership with BondLink to develop a new, free investor transparency initiative and website, bonds.untsystem.edu, to inform and attract potential institutional investors and donors to its upcoming bond sales.
BondLink, the cloud-based investor relations and debt management platform for the municipal bond market, helps issuers like the System provide a single location for accessing the data and documents that detail the credit features of their financing programs. BondLink also collaborates with other issuers across the U.S. and Texas, including the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs.
BondLink is passionate about helping universities across the country reach investors through digital channels by driving demand for bond sales and maximizing revenue. "Our new investor relations initiative with BondLink begins our next era of transparency to provide more documentation to our institutional investors than ever before," said Maleia Torres, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Treasury. "As we prepare for our next bond issuance, we're looking forward to utilizing this new site to allow us to become a more efficient team and help make sure every dollar goes back to helping students, faculty and staff at the universities."
With municipal bond issuance down significantly and issuers eschewing the market amid interest rate hikes and global market volatility, issuers, including the System, are increasingly turning to platforms such as BondLink to differentiate their bond offerings and provide transparency to investors.
