Krieg Will Provide Litigation Support and Expand MuniPriceTracker Product Offerings
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – June 4, 2018 – Blue Rose Capital Advisors, a Municipal Advisor for higher education and non-profit institutions, is pleased to announce that Justin Krieg has joined the Minneapolis office as Vice President at MuniPriceTracker (“MPT”).
MPT, a secondary market trading evaluation and monitoring service for tax-exempt bonds, is an independent web-based data and technology provider serving the municipal market. Through customized reports and web-based monitoring, MPT provides bond pricing transparency to verify compliance with the pricing and arbitrage/rebate requirements established by the IRS regulations governing tax-exempt bonds, private activity bonds, Build America Bonds, and other governmental bond issues. MPT is under common ownership and management with Blue Rose.
Mr. Krieg, who earned his doctorate in Economics from the Krannert School of Business at Purdue University, brings quantitative expertise and consulting experience to MPT. He will work to enhance and expand the product offerings of MPT while also expanding the litigation consulting services offered through newly formed MPT-Services. Mr. Krieg brings extensive experience analyzing complex datasets and using the insights from that analysis to help clients make better and more informed decisions.
“As much as I love working to understand the story behind the data, I find it even more rewarding when I can communicate those insights to others and help them make thoughtful and informed decisions.”
Prior to joining MuniPriceTracker, Mr. Krieg gained experience as a Legal Economic Consultant, and later as a Senior Consultant at Robins Kaplan LLP where he was responsible for leading small teams in support of the firm’s financial and antitrust litigation practices. These projects varied in nature but included evaluations of potential cases, the development and programming of economic and statistical analysis, review of expert reports, preparation and support of expert witnesses, management and analysis of large complex datasets and communication and education of findings.
After spending his career at Robins Kaplan as an internal consultant, Justin is excited about the possibilities for MPT. “The role of an internal consultant at a law firm is well defined and while I excelled in that role, the opportunity to apply my quantitative skills to a broader set of problems, while also developing new products and services, was the type of entrepreneurial opportunity that I could not pass up. I have found my brief time here to be invigorating and I am very excited to see what we can develop and achieve.”
“We are excited to bring Justin to the broader service team for the benefit of the clients that we serve,” said Erik Kelly, President of Blue Rose Capital Advisors. “Justin’s quantitative expertise, developed both from in the field experience as well as a Ph.D. in economics from Purdue, will provide additional quantitative depth to our organization that is already known for its thoughtful financial analyses. In his short time with us, Justin has already demonstrated financial thought leadership and modeling skill that will aid in our mission to serve organizations by providing advice, transparency, and advocacy.”
