About Public Financial Management (PFM)

PFM opened its first office in Philadelphia in 1975 with a staff of five. From the very beginning, Public Financial Management, Inc. had a distinct advantage over the competition: we understood the need for a financial services firm exclusively for the benefit of government and not-for-profit clients. Thanks to an unwavering commitment to outstanding service and serving the client’s interest above all else, PFM has grown into one of the nation’s leading independent municipal finance advisors.

Today, PFM currently employs more than 650 professionals serving a broad base of clients from locations in every region of the country. The firm is well respected for providing clients with independent advisory services free of conflicts in their dealings with the capital markets. Public Financial Management, Inc. is consistently among the top-ranked independent financial advisory firms in the nation in almost every major category, according to Thomson-Reuters.

PFM also provides best practice strategic consulting and pension advisory consulting services.

“I enjoyed working on meaningful projects for municipal bond issuers. Was able to work on a capstone project with other interns. I also completed 150+ cash flow and rebate analysis. ”

“I enjoyed the culture at the firm: it doesn't matter if you would like to have a coffee chat with a Managing Director or a Senior Analyst because anyone at the firm is willing to talk with you about their career path and yours. Also, the company does not care how much finance and Excel modeling you know prior to the internship since you get trained thoroughly in the first few weeks. Finally, your managers assign you projects that make you learn a lot of public finance. Since the clients are primarily local governments, you manager could ask you to research the fixed income markets and determine how money market mutual fund managers should respond to changes in these markets. Maybe you are making presentations on portfolio strategies. Overall, you get to do projects that expand on what you have learned in the classroom.”
