Interest rate swaps are financial tools used by many local government agencies to manage interest rate risk. The swap market at times provides issuers the opportunity to lower their cost of financing versus traditional alternatives in the bond market. Swaps remain an important tool in managing an issuer’s debt service obligations and exposure to interest rate risk.
With respect to municipal bonds, arbitrage is the profit made by investing tax-exempt bond proceeds in taxable securities. The Internal Revenue Code strictly limits the opportunity for issuers of tax-exempt debt to keep the earnings generated by taxable investments that exceed the yield on the bonds.
