Municipalities’ Inability to Pay Bond Interest Places Investors in a Precarious Position
Seeking Greater Yield and Safety, Muni Bond Customers Encounter Defaults
Despite the fact that the coronavirus has taken a toll on city and state finances, this isn’t stopping investors from buying municipal debt in a bid for greater yield and more safety than the markets can provide at this time. Unfortunately, because many municipalities don’t have the money to pay interest on the bonds, these muni bonds are defaulting. This is bad news for investors.
