“We’re confident that providing better disclosure tools to investors will allow the state to borrow at lower rates and reduce costs for taxpayers,” Treasurer Steven Grossman said in a statement.

The site is geared to institutional investors, such as mutual funds, that buy large amounts of bonds. It provides investors tools, the state said, such as software to analyze the Commonwealth’s data.

Over the past two years, the Commonwealth has revamped its disclosure practices to include a schedule of when bond information is published, regular live investor calls, and an annual investor conference to showcase the state’s financial standing, Grossman’s office said.
