Derivative / Hedging Advisory

Managing Director

We sit exclusively on the borrower’s side of the table to develop, negotiate and implement the most effective hedging strategy. SFG assists the borrower in evaluating the multitude of documentation during the debt closing and hedge purchasing processes and helps to negotiate the best pricing and terms from the dealers. SFG deals on a daily basis with every major swap counterparty in the municipal market. We know precisely how to negotiate the best terms for our clients with each of these counterparties and we know the strengths and weaknesses of each counterparty. Once the best price is locked in, SFG stays involved for the life of the transaction, providing ongoing support in managing the borrower’s derivative and debt portfolios as needed.
