How to Buy Washington Bonds


On July 16, 2012, Washington will provide in-state individual investors the opportunity to buy Series 2013B-2 (the "Bonds") before institutional investors*.

  • Learn About the Bonds
  • Read the Summary of the Bonds and the Preliminary Official Statement (POS) to learn about the Bonds, including their security, maturity dates, ratings, the types of projects they finance and other information you may find important to help you make an informed investment decision.
  • Consult a tax or financial advisor
  • You must have an account with a registered brokerage firm participating in the bond sale (click Participating Firms for list of participating firms). Bonds cannot be purchased directly from the State. If you do not already have an account at one of the participating firms, you may open one and purchase bonds during the early order period.
  • Investors are encouraged to begin the new account process well in advance of the sale. Depending on the brokerage, new account procedures may be time-intensive. Each participating firm has its own requirements for opening an account. Additionally, the State does not guarantee that any one of these firms will open an account for an investor.
  • The State does not endorse any firm listed as a participating firm. Participating firms do not have a contractual or other relationship with the State and are under no obligation to sell the Bonds to investors.
  • Place your order
  • Contact the broker with whom you have an account to get more information about how to buy bonds during the early retail order period.
