"History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes."

This panel will explore key federal and macroeconomic influences on municipal bond markets in 2024. Municipal bonds were the best performing fixed income asset class in 2023, with solid total returns powered by a remarkable bond rally in late 2023.

However, near-term uncertainties persist which lends caution to issuer and investor sentiment. Market expectations for rate cuts in 2024 deviate from the official Federal Reserve narrative and mixed economic data complicates the near-term rate outlook. Federal legislative actions in a highly charged political landscape and impending elections present both risks and opportunities. Sequestration-driven extraordinary redemptions for BABs are back in focus for issuers.  Credit fundamentals, resilient in recent years, will be tested in a slowing economic environment, with waning federal aid.

Join our panelists to discuss and highlight their expertise on:

•    Near-term rate expectations underpinned by macroeconomic forces, both domestic and global;
•    Supply side municipal market dynamics and assessing the trajectory of fund flows;
•    Identifying pockets of relative value at a time of stretched valuations; and
•    Prognosis for default/distress, highlighting the more vulnerable segments of the market.
