    While 2018 had no major asset class gain more than 5%, 2019 saw many asset classes make double-digit gains, led by the NASDAQ Indexes total return of 35.2%.

  • Markets in 2020, fixed income year-in-review, and new highs look likely

    Major issues persist with our optimistic outlook, a look back to fixed income in 2019, and a repeat of the market's 2019 result does not appear probable.

  • Municipal Market Monthly — September

    Last year’s municipal new issuance total, at $339 billion, established 2018 as the slowest of the past 5 years, and through May 2019, it seemed that this year would not be much busier, but the pace picked up after May.
