Get the Most from Muni Bonds

Markets can be unpredictable and rates will likely rise, but munis have historically been effective shock absorbers. Keep your tax-exempt portfolio steady—and positioned to
capitalize on opportunities.

Municipals Have Weathered Rising Interest Rates

The US economy is slowly improving, and interest rates have crept up over the last year. The pace is uncertain, but rates will most likely rise in 2014, leaving investors concerned about where to turn. Municipal bonds have historically been good shock absorbers—and with the right positioning, they can potentially provide effective insulation for portfolios.

Funds to Consider

AllianceBernstein aims to maximize the after-tax total return of our municipal bond portfolios, helping our clients earn more over time than they would have with a passive bond strategy.

Move to the Smart Part of the Curve and the Credit Spectrum

Today, the municipal yield curve is steep. Yields on longer-maturity bonds are abnormally higher than those on short-maturity bonds. Investors can take advantage of this environment, seeking to enhance returns by:
1) Taking profits from selling long-maturity bonds, using the THX strategy to move down to the intermediate-maturity, or smart, part of the yield curve
2) Moving to the medium-grade, or smart, part of the credit spectrum to access higher yields

Stay Flexible in an Evolving Landscape

Given the unpredictable economy and policy uncertainty, we believe that the best approach for taxable fixed-income investors is a flexible strategy that seeks income opportunities in both the taxable and municipal bond markets.

Senior Portfolio Manager Daryl Clements explains what helped and what hurt last quarter, and what we see impacting municipal portfolios in the near future.

Active Management Is Key

AllianceBernstein’s Tax Aware Portfolio can choose from both tax-exempt and taxable bonds in building attractive after-tax fixed-income returns.

WHY IT WORKS

Flexibility to invest in municipal and taxable bonds to enhance tax-exempt income.
