Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts plans to introduce a 60 million dollar fixed-rate general obligation issue in 2nd week of March, positioning itself to cover deficits Massachusetts paper left when a 371 million dollar University of Massachusetts issue was pulled from investors. The all-girls private college is taking advantage of low interest rates to do a refunding of 43 million dollars of Series D bonds issued in 1989. There is only a handful of small liberal arts colleges that are triple-A rated, among them Pomona College, Amherst College, Grinnell College, and Berea College. Bob Macintosh, a portfolio manager with Eaton Vance Management, says the Wellesley name alone should attract investors.
