For traditional bond financings, the borrower may select the senior managing underwriter from the Authority's Qualified Bankers List [pdf 29k] after performing a competitive process that considers at least three of the firms listed. The Authority reserves the right to add co-senior managers and/or co-managers to a transaction. If the Authority chooses to add these roles, borrowers may request particular firms for these roles after contacting and considering at least three of the listed firms. The Authority will appoint firms based on demonstrated ability to distribute New Jersey securities of comparable credit quality, sufficient capital to participate in underwriting the issue, and borrower preference.
If you are a financial organization that is not on the Authority's Qualified Bankers List but would like to be considered for senior manager, financial advisor, placement agent, co-manager, and/or remarketing agent on Authority transactions, the Request For Qualifications [doc 58k] and its attachments, EO26 Policies [pdf 24k] and Banker's RFQ Attachments [xls 32k], can be downloaded here for submittal. You can also receive the RFQ as a word document by contacting Carole Conover at (609) 292-8585 or by email at CConover@NJHCFFA.com.
