The same investment acumen and track record paired with a new outlook to further differentiate our firm as we forge a new path into the future.
AN UPDATE ON THE HIGH YIELD MUNICIPAL BOND MARKET
We believe this strategy can offer investors the following:
On a relative and absolute basis.
Favorable risk/reward characteristics compared to other asset classes
Low Correlation* to other asset classes
Relative to investment grade municipals and taxable high yield
Higher yields can offset price declines in rising rate environment
Our strategy is centered on selectively investing in innovative, non-traditional, new dynamic sectors such as continuing care retirement communities and charter schools. These sectors are historically higher yielding and may provide long term opportunities for enhanced total return and income.
