Rice Advisory LLC -- one of the fastest-growing municipal advisory firms in the United States.

Rice Advisory has the knowledge and experience that municipalities and institutions need in order to grow, succeed and respond to opportunities. In this rapidly changing regulatory environment, borrowers are increasingly recognizing the value of an advisor who represents the client, and the client alone.

As of April 2023 our people had successfully completed work on 728 transactions, raising more than $18.7billion in debt and equity financing for our clients, including work on $8.3 billion in completed transactions since Rice Advisory's formation in 2010. The results and reviews have been unanimously positive, and our measurable outcomes are beyond reproach.

Rice Advisory has been recognized numerous times by Thomson Reuters/Refinitiv and Bloomberg as Alabama’s #1 municipal financial advisor.
