NEW YORK, September 13, 2021 – Build America Mutual, the only U.S. muni-only bond insurer, announced that Morgan Fahy has joined BAM’s capital markets team as a Vice President to help continue to build demand for BAM-insured bonds from institutional investors, particularly through secondary-market insurance transactions. She will report to Grant Dewey, Head of Municipal Capital Markets.
Ms. Fahy joins BAM from Citi, where she was Vice President in the Institutional Municipal Sales Group. She has previous experience in corporate investment-grade credit and began her career as a financial analyst at PepsiCo.
“Direct contact with institutional investors is the best way to effectively communicate how BAM insurance can help them manage risk, reduce volatility, and preserve value in their municipal bond portfolios,” Mr. Dewey said. “Morgan’s client relationships and market experience allows her to identify and highlight relative-value trade ideas as a true partner for BAM’s clients.”
“I’ve watched institutional municipal investors become more active users of insurance in the past few years, and I am excited to join the BAM team to help build on that foundation,” Ms. Fahy said. “BAM’s unique U.S. municipal-only portfolio and durable ratings provide solutions for the clients I’ve worked with throughout my career.”
