In a recent paper (Q2 2019), Greenwich Associates explores quiet but impressive developments in municipal bond trading.

  • In February 2019, the municipal bond market had 1,023,438 available bonds to trade; 30 times more than the corporate bond market, and has grown to over $3.9 trillion in value, with roughly $12 billion worth of bonds trading daily
  • In 2018, e-trading in the institutional municipal bond market was higher than levels seen for investment-grade corporate bonds and more than double that of high-yield corporate bonds
  • Data available to market participants has grown, with both executable and evaluated prices now available for a huge portion of the issues

Read the full report to find out how this often-forgotten market is undergoing an evolution that will increasingly present opportunities to those willing and able to participate in the change.
