      All municipal advisors must be registered with the SEC and subject to fiduciary and other standards of conduct. Stockbrokers in the United States need to pass the Series 7 exam to obtain a license to trade. First, a few statistics that illustrate the enormous size of this market. Sometimes a combination of the two is used.

      A Municipal Advisor must be registered with the SEC and will be subject to fiduciary duties and other regulations. Collateral arrangements are divided into two broad categories, namely security interests and outright collateral transfers. However, after it has been engaged, an underwriter can provide various services to a municipality on an offering within the scope of the underwriting, including advice as to the structure, ratings, bond insurance, terms, pricing and other matters with respect to the offering. FINRA will then provide the parties with the panel members by selecting the highest ranked available arbitrator from each category. This system lists the registered and licensed professionals.

      Taxes reduce the net income on taxable bonds, meaning that a tax-exempt municipal bond has a higher after-tax yield than a corporate bond with the same coupon rate. Heilizer and Brian L. Different types of bonds are secured by various types of repayment sources, based on the promises made in the bond documents: General obligation bonds promise to repay based on the full faith and credit of the issuer; these bonds are typically considered the most secure type of municipal bond, and therefore carry the lowest interest rate. The firm must file a Form U4 Uniform Application for Securities Industry Registration for the candidate to be registered for the licensing exam.

How can an issuer obtain advice regarding a municipal issuance? The licensing exam covers an extensive range of financial terms and topics as well as securities regulations.

In addition to obtaining the Series 7 license, many states require that registered representatives pass the Series 63 exam, also called the Uniform Securities Agent State Law Exam.
