At Micromuni, we understand the complexities of municipal finance. That’s why we’ve designed Micromuni Refund, a highly flexible software tool that simplifies the process of advanced refunding of municipal bonds.
What is Refund?
Micromuni Refund is a part of our web-based suite of municipal finance tools. It’s specifically designed to assist bond underwriters and financial consultants in determining a portfolio of securities that will generate sufficient revenues to defease a set of escrow cash requirements.
Flexible Escrow Cash Requirements
Establish a set of escrow cash requirements that can consist of any valid dates and amounts.
Structure or verify a portfolio of securities for the escrow. The total portfolio can even be a mix of securities with different day/year bases, such as Actual/Actual, 30/360, and Actual/360.
Purchases and Candidates
The total portfolio consists of two types of securities: purchases and candidates. Purchases are the securities that will definitely be purchased for the escrow. Candidates are the set of securities you are considering buying for the escrow.
Micromuni Refund can determine the yield on escrow candidates and/or purchases that is essential for advanced refundings and restricted yielding escrows.
Micromuni processes and stores your data in the cloud so you don’t have to worry about computer crashes, hardware compatibility, or operating system changes.
