United We Build Stability

Tax-free bonds finance nearly three-quarters of all public infrastructure in the U.S., from roads and schools to airports and power plants. Municipal bond issuers are investing in the future, and the investors who support them benefit with tax-free income from an asset class with low volatility and risk of default. That’s why the National League of Cities selected BAM as the preferred provider of bond insurance for its 19,000 member cities and towns nationwide.
