My career in asset management started with Federated Investors' municipal bond group. As an analyst, I reported to the Sr. Analysts and Portfolio Managers. The talented team at Federated has a deep expertise in municipal credit.
Therefore, Lee Cunningham is the best person I know to answer the question "Is Chicago the next Detroit?" As Sr. Portfolio Manager, he runs Michigan focused and High Yield municipal bond funds for Federated Investors.
If you want to learn more about muni bonds, I recommend this book (link).
Also, if you are on twitter, I recommend followingCate Long (@cate_long) for all muni bond news.
