1. Investment-grade municipal bonds are bonds rated BBB/Baa or higher by S&P and/or Moody’s respectively. Such ratings indicate that a municipal or corporate bond has a relatively low risk of default.
2. You will also incur underlying expenses associated with the investment vehicles selected.
3. All investment strategies, including the investment strategy of the Service, involve the risk of loss of a portion of or all assets. In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties.
As with any investment, your investment through the Breckinridge Municipal SMA could have tax consequences for you. The Breckinridge Municipal SMA seeks to earn income exempt from federal income tax. Income exempt from federal income tax may be subject to state or local tax. A portion of the income you receive may be subject to federal and state income taxes and may also be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax. You may also receive taxable income attributable to the sale of municipal bonds, because certain income, including short-term capital gains and gains on the sale of bonds characterized as market discount, are generally taxable as ordinary income, while long-term capital gains are typically taxable as capital gains. The municipal market can be affected by adverse tax, legislative, or political changes and the financial condition of the issuers of municipal securities. Such changes can affect the tax treatment of municipal bonds. Investing in municipal bonds for the purpose of generating tax-exempt income may not be appropriate for investors in all tax brackets or account types. Tax laws are subject to change and the preferential tax treatment of municipal bond interest income may be removed or phased out for investors at certain income levels. You should consult your tax adviser for questions pertaining to your specific situation.
4. Pre-refunded and escrowed-to-maturity bonds are also considered eligible for funding and invested by Breckinridge, regardless of credit rating.
