From the Inside Flap

This informative volume is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic text on the municipal securities market. Written by Neil O'Hara for the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA)—the principal trade group representing securities firms and banks active in the municipal bond market—the Sixth Edition of The Fundamentals of Municipal Bonds provides comprehensive coverage of the many developments in the municipal securities market that have taken place in recent years. It provides a basic understanding of the market for a wide range of readers, including experienced professionals—such as investment bankers, traders, brokers, and professional investors—as well as public officials, academicians, students, and sophisticated individuals.

With today's financial market in recovery from the Great Recession—and still highly volatile—investors are looking for a stable, reliable, and safe source of investment income. The municipal bond market has always been a safe haven, and Fundamentals helps market observers sort through the many products and features to make the best investment choices. This book cuts through the noise to get to the facts that any investor needs to know.

Along with an extensive glossary of municipal bond terminology and a bibliography covering relevant print and online sources, as well as thorough descriptions of products prevalent in the market, the book provides detailed explanations and a variety of relevant examples to illuminate crucial areas such as

  • The basics of municipal securities

  • Financial products

  • Issuers

  • Primary and secondary markets

  • Investing in bonds

  • Credit analysis and understanding interest rates

  • Disclosure and regulatory requirements

Illustrated with numerous tables, charts, and mathematical formulas, this indispensable volume serves as a guide, reference work, and portal to the municipal securities industry. No investor or student of the market can afford to be without this new edition.

I found this book to be highly disjointed. I started working in Muni Finance a year ago and bought this book as a primer; although i have worked in finance prior.

I honestly just did not gain much from the book. This book is great if you LITERALLY do not know the difference between Primary vs Secondary vs OTC markets. If you have zero idea how finance works at all this book MIGHT be a good start. Everything important in the MuniMarket is absent from this book. Does not explain securities well; does not differentiate between municipalities and authorities; does not properly explain conduit issuers and their incentives in REV bonds. Special Districts are brushed aside when they should be explored more...

To put it simple - I agree with one line of Robert Fippinger's endorsement "...securities law issues are brought up-to-date"

Also the book is extremely overpriced and elongated. I would much rather suggest Encyclopedia of Municipal Bonds: A Reference Guide to Market Events, Structures, Dynamics, and Investment Knowledge (Bloomberg Financial) - half the size - same price - but it gives you a better idea of how the market function and also acts as a desktop glossary (a good one with references and information to follow up on).

If you are looking for a COMPREHENSIVE view of the MuniBond market i would suggest buying The Handbook of Municipal Bonds (Frank J. Fabozzi Series) - and skip the dense material that is irrelevant.

If you know nothing about municipal bonds, and even if you have no fixed income knowledge at all, this book is easily understandable.

I recently graduated from law school and secured a position working with a boutique municipal bond law practice. I had little knowledge of the muni bond market and wanted to learn more about the field before starting my job. This book is an extremely valuable resource that explains, in very understandable terms, the ins and outs of municipal bond finance. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thorough introduction into the world of muni bonds. Only a basic knowledge of finance is required to understand the explanations provided.
