Fixed Income for Public Entities

Wells Fargo has been helping municipalities, schools, hospitals, institutions of higher education, and all other public entities and non-profit organizations for more than 150 years. Wells Fargo Securities builds on that tradition by offering a growing list investment products, services, and expertise to finance directors and business administrators for public institutions across America. We have a local, customer-focused approach; we offer in-depth knowledge of your region, industry, and investment needs.

We help public entities with their investment needs by providing investment information and recommendations consistent with their investment policy guidelines. When allowable, this includes:

Educational opportunities

We offer a variety of events to help our clients understand fixed income products, strategy, and valuation. Our bond schools are periodic small group events where we introduce the basic concepts and features of specific short-term fixed income products. We designed the schools to present ideas, generate dialogue, and introduce best practices among investor peers.

Portfolio analytics

Our portfolio analytics team provides clients with a historical view of portfolio performance, a current snapshot of portfolio holdings and sector concentrations, and a forward-looking view of anticipated cash flows. Insights gained from these reports include performance and cash flow sensitivity in multiple interest rate environments, estimates on call risk in certain securities, as well as alerts for upcoming maturities and credit ratings changes. 

Portfolio accounting
