Is this going to be the year in which interest rates truly begin to rise? It now has been more than five years since the last interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Current statements by the Fed still project mid-2013 before a change in monetary policy.
In the meantime, investment portfolios at community banks continue to grow. What do we think is attractive?
This 60 minute webinar will:
- Review the current status of the interest rate curve
- Take a look at what the current community bank investment portfolio looks like
- Will make some suggestions about which bonds stand a reasonable chance of performing well in the coming year.
