Relative Value Training for Credit Analysts

Fundamental credit analysis is a critical component of municipal bond investing decisions. Yet, credit is just one input investors use to determine which bonds to buy, sell, and hold. NFMA will present two webinars to help credit analysts appreciate their role in the investment process by gaining a deeper understanding of bond structure, market dynamics, market vocabulary, and trading basics. Learning to determine relative value and to think in terms of value for credit will help analysts provide better and more informed analysis. It will also help credit analysts effectively communicate with other practitioners such as traders and portfolio managers.

This webinar will be held on Zoom. Registration information to come.

Day 2: Determining Relative Value

This session will address more advanced topics such as: factors impacting credit spreads, market technicals, how supply/demand and bond prices impact spreads. It will also introduce a mosaic approach to understanding a bonds’ relative value, a hierarchy of relative value, and how to find and talk about comps.

The goal of these sessions is to introduce analysts to some of these concepts. This 45-minute presentation will be followed with a live Q&A session.
