Unified Government Launches New Investor Relations Site
From the Unified Government:
The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas announced the launch of a new investor relations platform through BondLink. The site is a free resource for investors who may be interested in investing in our city and county.
The investor relations site is part of the Unified Government’s ongoing efforts to improve the level of transparency through this unique platform that provides financial data. The result will be increased participation in the Unified Government’s municipal bond financing programs.
“The Unified Government is excited and ready to use Bondlink’s investor platform, which will enable us to share data and connect with existing and potential investors. By lowering borrowing costs, we can invest the subsequent savings to focus on our neighborhoods and improve the quality of life for our citizens,” said Mayor/CEO David Alvey.
The platform is powered by BondLink, a Boston-based financial technology company that provides investor outreach solutions to issuers in the $4 trillion municipal bond market. BondLink currently serves high-profile issuers such as California, Chicago and the University of Texas.
“We’re thrilled to be powering the investor outreach for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City,” BondLink CEO Colin MacNaught said. “With increased transparency and enhanced technology, we can drive demand for its bonds by attracting more investors, including local Kansas investors.”
“I am excited about the launch of the investor relations website. We will now be able to communicate directly to investment banks, institutional investors and retail investors who potentially will become UG bond buyers,” said Kathleen VonAchen, Chief Financial Officer for the Unified Government. “It’s also an easier way to satisfy the information needs of our current bondholders since they can more conveniently access the periodic disclosure reports we are required to publish.”
