The muni bond market has quickly gone from a seller’s market to a buyer’s. Massive outflows from mutual funds, inflation expectations, anticipated Fed rate increases, and now the war in Ukraine have led to significant volatility. Interest rates moving sharply higher and lower has made price discovery difficult for issuers.

2022 was poised to bring some uncertainty, but few anticipated this large of a shift so soon.

Join this session to hear BondLink’s veteran muni issuers, Colin MacNaught and Tom Paolicelli, walk issuers through the do’s and don'ts outlined by bond investors today. We’ll share the most effective strategies for issuers to navigate these turbulent conditions and generate as much investor awareness as possible.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s particularly important to communicate directly with investors today
  • How issuers can most efficiently share their information with the sell-side
  • The data investors are prioritizing the most ahead of bond sales
  • What market trends and conditions to continue monitoring in  the near future

Even if you can’t make the live session, sign up anyway and we'll send you the recording.
