Key takeaways

  • Following SVB’s collapse, volatility across the banking sector and regulators’ responses in the U.S. and Europe likely mark an inflection point in this tightening cycle.
  • From our perspective, liquidity and short-duration portfolios are well positioned for the current environment.
  • We’re constructive on the outlook for municipal debt and believe that many opportunities remain for investors to take credit risk.
  • Taxable bond investors, in our view, could benefit from the recent upsurge in volatility as it acts to slow growth and temper inflation."
