Independent municipal bond market insights for advisors
Muni Catchup 9/1
by Pat Luby
The leaves are falling already!
It’s still officially summer, but the trees and the markets are getting ready for fall. Investors and market participants have one more long weekend to enjoy before sprinting to the end of the year.
The Context page has been updated through the end of August, and a new data point has been added to the fund flows table, showing the total assets and number of funds by fund type.
There will be a regular Catchup on Tuesday, with a more thorough discussion of the August market performance along with the reaction to Friday’s unemployment report.
The county park where I often ride my bike is beginning to gather some leaves.
