The Phoenix Business Journal, on October 29, 2018, published market observations from Aquila Tax-Free Trust of Arizona portfolio manager, Tony Tanner: My View, Arizona continues to benefit from municipal bonds. In the opinion piece, Mr. Tanner discussed the ability of investors in Arizona municipal bonds to support and participate in their local and state economies, and in visible and successful public works projects which have been funded primarily through municipal bonds.
“When Arizona investors consider the high quality and demonstrated strength of the Arizona municipal bond market, these characteristics can provide them with added confidence in making municipal bond investments that are essential to furthering the economy and quality of life in Arizona”, Mr. Tanner said.
Please plan to attend a meeting. We look forward to seeing you in either Scottsdale or Tucson.
