Improve your city by investing in the issues you care about and earn tax-free returns.

Investing in your city means fewer sleepless nights

Municipal bonds give you tax-free returns that are more stable than the stock market

Imagine you had $5,000 to invest in 1995. You had the choice between the stock market, a regular savings account, and municipal bonds. How did the choice you made affect you?

Here are four questions you should ask.

Did I sleep well during the two financial crises?
Did I get a good return?
Were my returns tax free?

Stock returns are based on the S&P 500 index. Bond returns are based on the Barclays Municipal Bond Index. Savings returns are based on average rates of 1-year certificates of deposit, using data from Jumbo CDs Inc. Post-tax returns were calculated using the example of an individual earning $100,000 per year, paying federal income tax on savings income and capital gains tax on stock market gains.

Making financial decisions for tomorrow is hard. Investing in your city doesn't have to be.

Investing in municipal bonds unlocks returns that go far beyond the financial benefits you'll receive. You're also building infrastructure you will rely on every day, increasing the real estate value of your city, and developing a stronger, happier future for generations of your community.
