U.S. Bank has been selected as the Fiscal Agent for the State of Washington. In this capacity, the U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services division will oversee over 2,500 bond issuances by more than 250 bond issuing entities within the state including school districts, cities, water and sewer authorities, and counties.

U.S. Bank, one of the largest providers of trustee services in the nation, will maintain records of registered bondholders, make principal and interest payments to bondholders, and provide additional services to participating bond financing issuers. The addition of fiscal agent services complements an already strong relationship U.S. Bank has with the State of Washington, where it also currently provides other trust, general banking services and local government investment pool services.

“The scope of this transaction is significant and we are pleased that the State of Washington chose U.S. Bank as its fiscal agent,” said Bryan Calder, president of U.S. Bank Global Corporate Trust Services. “We are honored to have the trust and confidence of the state agencies we support and will continue to provide them with the remarkable customer service they deserve.”

“U.S. Bank’s bondkeeping and web-based reporting services, along with its local presence, will fully support business operations for local government issuers across the state,” said State Treasurer Jim Mcintire, Washington State. “As our future needs change, we are confident that U.S. Bank will continue to invest in the development and implementation of new technologies. On behalf of the State Finance Committee, I commend the advisory group for their work throughout the extensive selection process.”

The conversion of bond issuances to U.S. Bank is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2015.
