Welcome to MuniMatters, an insightful look at politics, economics and municipal bond markets hosted by me, Roland Stoever, President of Stoever Glass Wealth Management, America’s oldest municipal bond specialty firms. I explain the advantages of buying individual bonds as opposed to bond funds in layman’s terms to investors. I do not pretend to know everything about the stock market or the Dow, but I do know a thing or two about bonds. I am here to help the average reader understand how fixed-income investments offer tremendous opportunities for those interested in reliable incomes and long-term plans for their loved ones.
Let’s take a look at bond funds. Are they right for you? Should you look at a fund, an ETF or individual bonds? How and why you should check out different types of investments.
For more than half a century, Stoever Glass has been helping individuals and families invest for their futures from buying individual municipal bonds. Over the years, we have found that some of the larger firms out there, often referred to as Wirehouses, possess expertise in certain areas. But no one is an expert of everything. I don’t want to label the bond buying business as “complicated,” but one certainly has to know what he or she is doing to make a nice living.
