Ed speaks with Tom Doe, President and Managing Partner, Municipal Market Analytics, Inc. about his outlook for municipal markets.
I meet with Tom Doe, President and Managing Partner, Municipal Market Analytics, Inc. to discuss his outlook for municipal markets, and answer the question if now is the time to invest. We chat about the fund flows into muni bond ETFs and out of muni bond mutual funds. I ask Tom to jump into the headwinds he sees for munis in 2022, as interest rates continue to rise. We also discuss how inflation is impacting muni credit, and which sectors of the muni market may work best in an inflationary environment.
