Bond Valuation and Structuring

In recent years, most municipal bonds aimed at institutional investors carried an above-market 5% coupon and had a 10-year call. The 5% NC-10 structure had wide appeal for a variety of reasons, a primary one being the bonds' eligibility for advance refunding. In the absence of advance refunding, the 5% NC-10 structure will lose much of its appeal.
