LANDMARK LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST SEC TO PROTECT ALL WHISTLEBLOWERS

Investor Bulletin: Municipal Bonds

“The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy is issuing this Investor Bulletin to help educate investors about assessing credit risks they face when purchasing municipal bonds, which may also be called notes or certificates of participation. Credit risk—or default risk—is the risk that interest and/or principal on the securities will not be paid on time and in full. Investors need to know who is responsible for repayment of the securities and the financial condition of that entity to assess the credit risk and decide whether to purchase the securities. It is important to look beyond the short-hand label given to a municipal bond, such as “general obligation bond” or “revenue bond,” or the bond’s credit rating. Investors should read the disclosure document, known as the “official statement,” which provides important details about the offering, including the factors described below.” This bulletin is important to potential whistleblowers because fraudulent investment schemes often involve promises to invest in secure and low risk investments like municipal bonds but instead use the investments on more risky investments.
