General Obligation


Boston is a city on the move. In the last six years, we have dedicated ourselves to Boston’s progress. In the city where free public education began, we expanded its reach from pre-kindergarten to community college. We tackled a housing shortage by building record numbers of new homes and new affordable homes. We showed a way forward in police-community relations. We proved that Boston’s values create value: adding 80,000 new jobs, lifting up small businesses in every neighborhood, and becoming a headquarters city in the global economy. And over the past five years, we’ve seen our revenue grow by over 25% and have secured and maintained AAA bond ratings since 2014.

With the progress taking place in Boston, it is important that we keep our residents and investors updated on all financial aspects of City Hall. On behalf of the City of Boston, I would like to welcome you to our investor relations website. We are committed to financial transparency, to maintaining our strong financial condition, and to continuing to build investor confidence in the Boston credit.

We appreciate your interest and investment in bonds issued by the City, as it allows us to make critical investments in public infrastructure -- investments that are designed to ensure Boston remains the best place in America to live, to work, and to raise a family.  

I hope you find this website useful as you seek to better understand Boston’s credit fundamentals. Please do not hesitate to contact our offices with suggestions for how we can make it even more useful to you. Thank you for your interest in Boston, and we look forward to investing in Boston’s future, together.

Martin J. Walsh
Mayor of Boston
