Smith's Research & Gradings has been providing recognition for the achievements and fine work of municipal professionals since 1992. Smith's Municipal All-Star Program is the only program that consistently and prominently provides recognition in the municipal space 1. In this year’s awards, more than 400 analysts and over 100 firms participated on the nomination. Smith’s Municipal All-Star Program includes sell-side and buy-side firms, rating agencies, as well as independent research analysts. Only institutional investors can vote, and this year’s final ballot was sent out to 1,000 voters.
We are excited to share that Julie Egan, CCM’s Director of Municipal Research, was elected to Smith’s 2019 All-Star Second Team in the Housing Bond Category. Responsible for overseeing and performing CCM’s municipal credit analysis and research, Julie has been a nominee for Smith’s All-Star team since before 2006 and over the past 10 years has been elected to the first team three times and five times to the second team. Julie has over 30 years of experience in credit and municipal research and recently celebrated her 10-year anniversary working at CCM. Julie is also active in the National Federation of Municipal Analysts, chairing the Board in 2017. She also previously served as President for the Southern Municipal Finance Society from 2008 to 2010 and 2012. We are extremely proud of Julie and this recognition.
Julie will be attending the official awards ceremony on December 4 in New York City where she will receive the award. For more details on the conference visit: https://www.smithsresearch.net/ast-reg_details/
