Chet Wang is a registered municipal advisor with an exclusive focus on California education municipal bonds. He has provided financial advisory and investment banking services to California school and community college districts since 2005.
Chet has advised on over $10 billion in debt financings such as general obligation bonds, certificates of participation, special tax bonds, bond anticipation notes, and tax and revenue anticipation notes. Chet takes a quantitative approach to bond financings and specializes in structuring bond programs, analyzing debt capacity, preparing credit profiles, researching market developments, and refinancing/restructuring debt.
Prior to becoming a municipal advisor in 2008, Chet was a member of a California education-focused investment bank. Serving on the investment banking side has provided Chet with a unique perspective on the bond underwriting process. This knowledge and experience has helped Chet navigate bond pricings and advocate for lower interest rates on behalf of issuers.
Chet received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. He double majored in Business Economics and Communications and minored in Accounting.
When not crunching numbers or presenting at Board meetings, Chet is cycling the Santa Monica mountains, barely finishing triathlons and learning how to off-road.
