Get to Know the WMF Team

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

Webb Municipal Finance, LLC (WMF), a Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) Registered Municipal Advisor Firm, offers assessment engineering, special tax consulting, and comprehensive program management of special financing districts on behalf of public agencies. With proven experience in all areas of municipal finance, a robust list of services, and an excellent project management approach, coupled with our mission of integrity in our dealings with clients, staff, public, officials, and the public, is what makes WMF the absolute right choice to provide efficient and fluid management for all projects.

WMF became a separate entity from Albert A. Webb Associates (WEBB) due to the rules imposed by the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) requiring firms and consultants providing certain types of advice to the principal agencies to register with the SEC and MSRB. WEBB took proactive measures to transition the Municipal Finance Department to this new entity, separate from the operating owners and principals of WEBB. In addition, all Municipal Finance Department personnel transitioning to WMF, ensure the team's institutional knowledge, history, and thorough understanding of our clients' needs are preserved.
