Our firm takes special interest in land conservation investment.
We track municipal bond issuance that has conservation related use of proceeds. These bonds tend to be issued on a general obligation basis and carry similar yield characteristics to competing bonds offerings. This provides our clients with both tax-exempt income and a clear view on how their capital is working on land preservation and environmental remediation projects.
In select states, we also participate in the market for tax credits generated by conservation easement, brownfield and historical preservation activities. Our work provides competitive rates of return on our client's tax capital, and gives them the ability to direct their annual tax spend specifically into projects they think are meaningful.
