MuniGUARD News

Timely Municipal Bond News from Hundreds of Sources


MuniGUARD® News delivers “news in context” for municipal market professionals. Filtering thousands of stories daily from more than 500 local and regional news sources, MuniGUARD News delivers news on specific bonds at the CUSIP®/Series, Obligor, Location and Bond Type levels.

MuniGUARD NEWS is specifically designed to identify new buying opportunities and emerging credit risk issues, and help firms comply with best practice standards for compliance with Disclosure at the Point of Sale, Suitability and ongoing monitoring and surveillance of municipal portfolios.

Meeting G-17, G-19 and G-47 requirements

FINRA and the MSRB have both stated that using EMMA site alone is not enough to meet the regulatory requirements for G-17, G-19 and proposed G-47, and publicly available news may be considered “material information” that could affect credit quality and suitability when either buying or selling a municipal bond.
