Smith's Municipal All-Star Awards

Providing recognition for the nation's best and brightest since 1992.

Smith's Research & Gradings has been providing recognition for the achievements and fine work of municipal professionals since 1992. Smith's Municipal All-Star Program is the only program that consistently and prominently provides recognition in the municipal space.

SMITH’s Municipal All-Star Program starts with the formation of Smith's Blue Ribbon Ballot Committee of Portfolio Managers in January and February. Members of SMITH’s Blue Ribbon Ballot Committee are asked to nominate the nation’s leading municipal analysts to the ballot. Completed ballot nomination forms are sent back in early summer.

Once the ballot nominations are compiled and verified, the final ballot is sent out to 1,000 institutional investors for voting. Only Institutional Investors can vote. Each ballot is identified with a unique voter ID. Investors have the option of completing the paper ballot or registering to vote online in the electronic voting booth .

SMITH’s Municipal All-Star Program includes sellside and buyside firms, rating agencies,  as well as independent research analysts.
