STAREBEI: Land Value Finance as a Tool to Diminish Municipality Bond Risk
The recent financial turmoil and the insurance industry crisis has raised the need to find new sources of insurance for municipal bonds that can be used to reduce the borrowing cost for local authorities. A number of studies on bond insurance (Liu, 2011; Denison, 2001; Cole and Officier, 1981) have shown how different strategies can be implemented by a municipality in order to decrease risks related to municipal bonds, and thus enable the municipality to lower its borrowing costs. In light of the previous study sponsored by the STAREBEI grant, the aim of the research is to extend the results obtained on land value finance to focus on how LVF mechanisms can be used to reduce borrowing costs for local authorities when issuing municipal bonds for urban investments.
