Join our session: real liquidity, real spreads and an unreal economic cycle

October 21 | 9:45am

Join Blake Anderson, Senior Managing Director and Head of Strategy & Research in Mesirow Capital Markets & Investment Banking, for a discussion addressing what's really driving the demand for tax-exempt high-yield municipal bonds. Is inflation here to stay or is it transitory and rates are really going lower for longer?  Panel members will discuss if a liquidity bubble exists in the high-yield municipal bond market and if so, how can we measure it? It's not just about higher yields, but also how to build better performance for your portfolio — one high-yield bond at a time.
