When the Market is Volatile, BAM Provides Stability
As investors consider how to deploy their funds in this volatile environment, BAM-insured municipal bonds can be an important component of fixed-income portfolios. All BAM-insured bonds are rated AA with a Stable outlook by S&P Global Ratings. BAM guarantees timely payment of interest and principal, backed by more than $900 million of claims-paying resources. BAM’s promise is unconditional and irrevocable, even if an issuer’s regular operations are disrupted by work-from-home or shelter-in-place orders. BAM-insured bonds can also be used by investors to limit the risk of ratings volatility for specific issuers, increase liquidity of their position, and manage the risk concentrations within a portfolio.
BAM remains fully open for business and is processing requests for insurance for both primary and secondary-market transactions.
