Financial structures for private colleges and universities can be critical to the success of your mission. Ziegler is an expert at helping you understand the capital markets and sort through the many options available for securing capital. 

In fact, we’ve been doing just that for clients since 1913. Whether it be financing for a major new dormitory project or perhaps refunding an existing bond issue, you can turn to Ziegler to help resolve financial challenges. We can formulate almost any type of capital structure for your organization, including letter-of-credit backed bonds, rated bonds, and we are also experts in underwriting unrated and unenhanced transactions to obtain the best pricing for your institution.  In an average year, we will underwrite in excess of $4 billion dollars in financing for our nonprofit clients.

We are also experts in the full spectrum of hedging techniques, including SWAPS, CAPS and COLLARS.

Upon receipt of the following information, approval will be established by the Ziegler Finance Committee. 

One of the first questions private school leadership should ask when considering a major project is, “How much debt can my school afford?” Please contact us to Determine your Debt Capacity.
