Glossary of Indian Tribal Finance Terminology


Discussions about borrowing can be confusing. Bankers, lawyers and other industry professionals use terminology that is widely understood within the business but which is not a part of everyday conversation. If you have ever picked up a credit agreement or tried to evaluate a financing proposal, you may have felt like you needed an interpreter. Written by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, this glossary is intended as a handy reference guide for tribal leaders, finance officers, and for those who work closely with them. The guide includes general terminology specific to tribal government financing.
