“I’ve grown up with the modern municipal bond market. When I entered the business, munis were barely considered a proper asset class. Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed rate swings, sector collapses, economic crises, headline scares, and more. My connection to the market, and all its wonderful eccentricities and peccadillos, has consumed my entire working life and I’m learning more every day.”
Active bond management is a constantly changing process that demands imagination, discipline, and judgment. Knowing that what worked yesterday may not work tomorrow injects a high degree of dynamism that is both humbling and exhilarating.
