Municipal Bond Credit Analysis,
Municipal Bond Disclosure
Greg Clark thoroughly understands municipal bonds. He is able to transmit his expertise, whether verbally or in writing, in an understandable and approachable way.
Mr. Clark's knowledge results from 39 years as a municipal bond analyst, a role that entails knowledge of municipal law and accounting, demographics, and project feasibility. During his career he has held positions at a rating agency, hedge fund, broker-dealers, commercial banks, and municipal bond insurers. As a result, he has studied probably every type of municipal bond that is issued.
In 2012, Mr. Clark concluded fourteen years of service to the National Federation of Municipal Analysts (NFMA) and the Municipal Analysts Group of New York (MAGNY), eventually serving as chairman of each. At NFMA he was also co-chair of the Disclosure and Industry Practices Committees and served on a task force formed by the National Association of Bond Lawyers (NABL) that addressed disclosure of pension information.
Other NFMA roles included meetings and interim contacts with an SEC Commissioner, employees of the SEC's Office of Municipal Securities, staff members of the U.S. House Financial Services Committee, and representatives of both the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). In the past 25 years I have also served on various GASB task forces.
During my career I have spoken at numerous conferences held by The Bond Buyer and NFMA. Two panels I moderated at NFMA conferences were chosen for publication in "Municipal Finance Journal".
In late 2015, I was retained by the US Securities and Exchange Commission to be the SEC's expert witness in a case involving municipal bonds and was deposed in that case in June 2018.
