Wisconsin is the latest state to hire financial advisor Saber Partners to oversee an upcoming public utility securitization program, in the hopes of reducing pricing levels for the proposed deals and to drive the underwriters it hires to go the extra mile when selling the bonds.

With former Prudential Securities investment banker Joseph Fichera at the helm, Saber is advising Wisconsin's Public Service Commission (PSC). The consultancy has become a familiar name in the ABS market over the past three years because of its advisory work with the Texas Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and New Jersey's public utilities board.
