Credit surveillance is a part of every credit analyst’s job: how should analysts think about unlikely risks, and how do muni issuers plan for the unexpected?  To what extent do existing actuarial and budgeting techniques already address scenario planning and risk management?  Join us for an enlightening discussion with experts from actuarial science and public budgeting.
