Who We Serve


First Tryon’s financial advisory practice was built on providing high-quality advice to governmental institutions. We know that the financing needs of governments are unique given the number of revenue sources and financing structures available. Our goal is to identify and recommend the vehicle which best fits the needs of each of our clients. Additionally, our team knows that the political environment can present major challenges which must be navigated in order to successfully implement a plan of finance. Our strong foundations and extensive experience make First Tryon an ideal guide when it comes to navigating these challenges.

State & Local

Our municipal advisors have served a variety of governmental entities over the past 25 years. We have extensive experience with all forms of government financing including revenue bonds, general obligation bonds, appropriation-backed debt, special obligation bonds, lease purchase financing, state and federal loan programs and tax increment financing. We tailor finance plans to best meet our client’s needs and are well-equipped to advise on both traditional as well as unique and highly complex projects. As a chosen municipal advisor, we will provide proactive solutions utilizing customized strategies designed to achieve our client’s strategic goals.
