An Appealing High-Yield Muni Fund With an Appetite for Risk
Bronze-rated BlackRock High Yield Municipal brings a stout team, effective process, strong long-term performance, and inexpensive fees to the table.
Kenneth Oshodi: BlackRock High Yield Municipal's combination of a stout team, effective process, strong long-term performance, and inexpensive fees make it an appealing offering.
Managers Ted Jaeckel and Walter O'Connor lead the bottom-up and top-down approach for this fund, whose stable and robust team also benefits from BlackRock's sophisticated risk-management tools. Jaeckel and head of municipal research, Jim Schwartz, further strengthened the team's process by forming a separate high-yield muni strategy group, a team of analysts and portfolio managers dedicated to thoroughly studying the high-yield municipal landscape.
