Indiana Education Finance

Financial expertise centered on our children’s futures.

Applying our 30-plus years of experience in primary and secondary school underwriting, the Raymond James Public Finance team delivers innovative financing options, highly competitive borrowing costs and client-focused service to school districts throughout Indiana. And we do it directly from our offices in Indianapolis and Crown Point.

Our team has extensive experience facilitating strategic financing programs with Indiana municipal bond issuers, along with a specialized focus on K-12 school district project financing, referendum and debt restructuring. Well-versed in the nuances of the Indiana school system, we provide issuers with the guidance and capabilities they need to execute successful financings. Thanks in part to these efforts, Raymond James Public Finance consistently ranks among the Top 10 underwriters of municipal bonds nationwide and leading five underwriters of K-12 issues nationally.*
