  • About Quick Search

    A quick search can be conducted from virtually any page on EMMA using the Quick Search box in the upper-right corner of every page. Quick Search allows searches by CUSIP® number, municipality, issuer name, and issue name, among other terms. Entering text in the Quick Search box will display a dropdown list of the top-10 matched terms and links to more complete results. The list of suggested terms has three sections:

    The first section contains links to matches to an issuer’s name;The second section has a link to a results page that displays matches in either the issuer name or description (see below); and If a state name is entered, the third section will present a link to see all issuers in that state.

    • CUSIP Number

      If you know the 6-, 8-, or 9-digit CUSIP identifier of a security, enter it in the Quick Search box. Trade confirmations must, and most account statements, do include the 9-digit (CUSIP-9) for each security. Use the first six digits of a CUSIP identifier (CUSIP-6) if you prefer to see a listing of all issues for a particular issuer.

    • Name of Security (issue name)

      If you know the name of your security (which may be printed on your trade confirmation or account statement), you can enter this text into the Quick Search box and you will be presented with a dropdown list with the name of your security. Avoid using common terms, which can bring back results numbering in the thousands.

    • Issuer Name (municipality)

      Entering the name of a state, city, county, or other municipality will present a dropdown list of securities where that name appears in the issuer name. If you enter a state name in the quick search box, selecting the bottom entry from the dropdown will take you directly to a list of all issuers in the state.

    • Results Page

      When conducting a quick search, if you select '… in Issuer name or Description' from the dropdown list of matched terms, you will be directed to a list of the best matches for both issuer names and issue descriptions. The filters on the left side of the Quick Search results page allow you to toggle between searching in the issuer name only, issue description only, or both the issuer name and description. Continue to refine your search by any combination of state, dated date, maturity date, source of repayment and tax status, and select whether to exclude matured and/or redeemed issues. Use Advanced Search if you need to see more results than Quick Search provides.

  • About EMMA Advanced Search

    Watch a tutorial about how to search securities on EMMA .
    EMMA's advanced search provides you with the broadest variety of search criteria, including:

    Security Information Filters
    • State

      A drop-down menu allows for the selection of the state in which the municipal issuer of the securities is located.

    • Issuer Name & Issue Description
      • Standardized issuer names are used in connection with the assignment of CUSIP numbers. These are the names upon which Issuer Name searches are based. These names include a number of standardized or common abbreviations, and EMMA has incorporated into its search functions a translation algorithm that should allow users to search on many of the most often used standard abbreviations and their related plain English equivalents interchangeably. Users are not required to enter the full name but can search on specific words within a name.
      • Standardized terminology is used for issue descriptions when CUSIP numbers are assigned. These issue descriptions are used for purposes of Issue Description searches. Issue descriptions include a number of standardized abbreviations, and EMMA has incorporated into its search functions a translation algorithm that should allow users to search on many of the most often used standard abbreviations and their related plain English equivalents interchangeably. In many but not all cases, a borrower or obligor that is the beneficiary of an issue may be named in the issue description. Currently, the best way to search for an obligor in EMMA is through the Issue Description field, but there is no assurance that obligors will always be identified in this way. Users may search on a full or partial issue description.

      If multiple terms are entered within a single field, EMMA will find matching records containing all such terms in any order. If multiple terms are entered within quotation marks (' '), then EMMA will find only exact matches for such multiple terms as entered.

    • Closing Date

      Closing date is the date on which the issuer delivered the securities to the underwriter upon initial issuance.

    • Dated Date

      Dated date is the date from which interest on the securities begins to accrue.

    • Interest Rate

      This criteria searches on the interest rate, sometimes referred to as the 'coupon rate' of the bond or note, expressed as a percentage. This is different from yield, which is the rate of return on an investment based on trade price and term of investment.

    • CUSIP-6

      CUSIP-6s (the first six characters of a CUSIP-9) are a way to search for multiple issues of an issuer. If the issuer has a single CUSIP-6, your search should return all of the securities within that issuer’s bond issues. If the issuer has more than one CUSIP-6, your search will only return securities in a subset of that issuer’s issues (e.g., bonds secured by a particular credit, securities issued for a particular purpose, bonds issued during a particular timeframe). Often, you can find other issues of an issuer with multiple CUSIP-6s by conducting an Issuer Name search using the exact name from the first CUSIP-6 search. Do not use Issuer Name or State when conducting a CUSIP-6 search since these are already tied to the CUSIP-6.

    • Maturity Date

      This is the date on which a bond or note matures and the principal amount is repaid to the investor.

    • Purpose/Sector

      A drop-down menu allows a search based on the issuer's intended use of the proceeds of the offering. Options include:

      • Improvement
      • Tax-Revenue
      • Utility
      • Other
    • Source of Repayment

      A drop-down menu allows a search on the source of funds pledged by the issuer for repayment of the securities. Options include:

      • General Obligation
      • Revenue
      • Double Barrel
    • Rate Type

      A drop-down menu allows a search on securities with different types of interest rates/coupons. Options include:

      • Fixed
      • Variable
      • Zero-Coupon
    • Insured

      A drop-down menu allows a search on whether a security has been guaranteed by a bond insurer for the payment of the principal and interest should the issuer fail to make the required payments.

    • Tax Status

      A drop-down menu allows a search on whether a security is subject to federal income tax.

    • Callable

      A drop-down menu allows a search on whether the issuer has the right to redeem a security in whole before maturity.

    • Next Call Date

      The next date on which the issuer can exercise its option to redeem a security in whole.

    • Next Call Price

      The price at which the issuer can redeem a security on the next call date.

    • Current Long-Term Ratings

      Current long-term credit ratings assigned by Fitch Ratings, Kroll Bond Ratings Agency (KBRA), Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. and Standard and Poor’s are provided on EMMA and may be included in a search. See Understanding Credit Ratings for more information.

    • Security Type

      More than 95 percent of all municipal securities are municipal bonds and notes that are assigned a CUSIP-9. This is the default option for searches on EMMA. However, the Security Type drop-down menu allows searches for other types of municipal securities. Commercial paper consists of short-term, unsecured promissory notes assigned a CUSIP-6 identifier. Securities ineligible for CUSIP number assignment are securities that do not have CUSIP numbers assigned due to unique characteristics of the security. Municipal fund securities are securities with features similar to mutual funds such as local government investment pools.
