About the Webinar

This webinar was originally broadcast on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 10:00am CST.

Hospitals and health systems heading to the bond markets face closer scrutiny of their risk to liquidity resulting from alternative investments that tie up cash—such as hedge funds, private equity and real estate—as well as debt marketed to short-term investors. As analysts and investors seek greater disclosure, healthcare organizations have begun reviewing their debt and investment portfolios. Many have grown more cautious.

Attend this webcast and hear from a health system executive and an analyst with a major credit-rating agency as they discuss balance-sheet risk assessment after the credit crisis. Learn about:

  • New credit-rating liquidity measures
  • Balancing debt and investments
  • Diversifying portfolios
