How the Financial Crisis Improved the Municipal Bond Market

This week, Neighborly is interviewing Paul Rosenstiel, board member of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) Previously, Paul served as managing director at Stifel and managing partner of the San Francisco office of De La Rosa & Co From 2007-2009, Paul served as Deputy State Treasurer to Bill Lockyer in California Paul helped manage the State of California’s issuance of bonds during a national financial crisis This proved to be a challenging time - one that offered learning experiences that Neighborly wanted to hear all about! What does a Deputy State Treasurer do? How did you first get involved on this side of public finance? After more than 20 years as a public finance banker, I joined Steve Westly’s campaign for governor in 2006 as his policy director After Steve lost in the primary, I joined Bill Lockyer’s campaign team.
