Syracuse University Library now provides access to the public finance portions of Standard & Poor’s Global Credit Portal. This source is invaluable for anyone conducting comprehensive research into government bond issues and other securities tied to finance of U.S. local and regional governments.
Explore S&P’s ratings and reports on government sectors that include education (higher education, K-12 and charter schools), health care, transportation, utilities, housing and more. Review close to two decade’s worth of S&P’s analysis of municipal finance instruments in the U.S., accessing information on ratings upgrades and downgrades and other analytical commentary.
S&P’s advanced search engine allows a researcher to hone in on a specific U.S. state, a bond issuer by name, or a search by CUSIP number. Additional detailed menus allow drilling down into narrower sub-categories of securities types within each sector.
ACCESS NOTE: This subscription is limited to five (5) simultaneous users at any one time.
