This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Utah ranks as a top state for business, growth and quality of life. Brennen Brown, managing director of D.A. Davidson’s Special District Group is here to share the importance of investing in sustainable growth through public and innovative financing solutions.


Infrastructure financing is a challenge in a rapidly growing state. Many cities and counties across Utah are feeling growing pains and often lack the necessary funds to build the infrastructure needed to keep pace.

That’s where D.A. Davidson’s Special District Group can help. Our team specializes in raising capital early in the process which then allows infrastructure to be built before the growth occurs. This also alleviates some of the burden placed on the budget of local jurisdictions.

Last year, we achieved the first bond issuance from a Utah Public Infrastructure District. That was significant. Those bonds financed the public infrastructure needed for the development of a new medical school in Provo that will serve Utah and become an economic catalyst and asset to the entire region.

From project inception to completion, our valuable partnerships bring innovation, employment and economic growth to the communities we serve.


D.A. Davidson’s Special District Group has successfully completed more than 100 transactions, totaling nearly $2 billion to fund projects in Utah and the Intermountain West. You can learn more at their website. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
