About This Episode

As 2023 is nearing its end, tax-loss harvesting season is in full swing. This is often top of mind for advisors and their clients. But Capital Group is seeing some advisors hesitate to harvest losses due to ongoing volatility in the equity and bond markets, and general uncertainty about 2024.

My guest, Courtney Wolf, joins me today to talk about why to deploy cash and use tax-loss harvesting via active fixed income ETFs. Courtney is a muni portfolio manager at Capital Group and the principal investment officer for the firm’s active muni ETF, CGMU. With nearly two decades of muni investing experience, Coutney will offer her forecast for munis more broadly in 2024 as well.
