The Virgin Islands Public Finance Authority (VIPFA) has announced that it engaged the services of Fiscal Strategies Group Inc as its independent registered municipal advisor.

Farrelly and John de Jongh Jr. and the Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA). FSG is knowledgeable of the territory’s pension system challenges and will work closely with key stakeholders to propose solutions to the crisis faced by the Government Employees Retirement System (GERS).

VIPFA’s director of finance and administration explained to the board of directors during its Aug. 12 meeting that “Fiscal Strategies Group has a long-standing relationship with the Virgin Islands Government and a proven financial services record.” The board of directors voted unanimously to engage the expertise and experience that Fiscal Strategies Group Inc. offers.
