With a diverse and growing economic base, as well as an unemployment rate well below the national average, Indianapolis is among the most stable bond issuers in the country. Healthy reserves, a resilient tax base, income levels that exceed both state and national medians, and property tax processes that protect bondholders all contribute to the city’s consistently high bond ratings from Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch.
The Indianapolis Bond Bank further mitigates bondholders’ risk through professional management of the city’s outstanding portfolio of debt and its relationship with credit providers, ratings agencies and investment banks; oversight of the issuance of new debt; investment and disbursement of bond proceeds, and timely compliance with all relevant covenants and coverage tests. Given the depth of experience and range of expertise among the Indianapolis Bond Bank’s board and staff, investors know that the bonds they invest in through the Bank are viable vehicles that will generate reliable returns.
