Amid bull market, BNY considers shutting Muni Opportunities Fund

  • “A lot of the opportunities have been washed away in the last month and a half,” says BNY Mellon fixed income director John Flahive. “There really isn’t much out there.”
  • The muni market is ahead 6.2% YTD, its strongest start since 2009, and benchmark 10-year muni yields have dipped to 2.29%. At work is the general rally in fixed income coupled with a decline in issuance.
  • The fund has about $961M in assets vs. an original target size of $1B, and has beaten 83% of peers over the past five years.
  • Muni ETFs: MUB, HYD, BAB, PZA, MUNI, TFI, ITM, HYMB, MLN, CMF, SHM, BABZ, BABS, XMPT, PRB, SUB, NYF, SHYD, SMB, PZT, CXA, PWZ, PVI, SMMU, INY, MUAF, MUAE, MUAD, VRD, GMMB, MUAC, MUAG, MUAH, RVNU

    The muni bond INSURERS are still a bargain though.
