With interest rates at historically low levels, investors still have a pressing need to find reasonable income. In this upcoming webinar, Invesco’s municipal investment leaders representing mutual funds, ETFs and separately managed accounts, will discuss how advisors and investors can use different investment solutions to balance the need for income with the realities of managing risk in an uncertain climate.
This presentation will cover:
- Balancing the need for income with the importance of managing risk amid the market volatility created by the pandemic.
- The prospects for higher tax rates and the increased appeal of tax-advantaged municipal bonds, as the government looks to pay for massive stimulus packages.
- Aligning investor goals with the portfolios objective to find the right municipal income solution to meet their needs.
