Since January 2012, interest rates have essentially run in place. But don't be fooled into thinking that nothing has changed. For one thing, the Fed has pushed further into the future the period that it expects to be on hold. For another, it is employing another round of Quantitative Easing. On top of that, housing seems to have turned the corner on recovery. All this is occurring while banks have grown their investment portfolios to record size. This one-hour webinar will review the key metrics of the bond market, and will describe ways in which community banks are producing reasonable returns out of well-structured portfolios.
