Enhanced Intermediate Tax Exempt Strategy

 

Objective:

APA seeks to provide a high level of income exempt from federal income tax by
investing primarily in lower-rated municipal bonds. The strategy seeks to exploit investment opportunities using relative-value and credit analysis, primarily through diversified exposure to the lower bands of investment-grade municipal bonds. Investment opportunities that maximize total return are sought through a well-defined investment process that has been in place for over 25 years.

Investment Process:

• Conducted thorough relative-value and credit analysis to take advantage
of pricing inefficiencies in the market

• Fundamental bottom-up credit research is the cornerstone of our
approach to high-yield investing. We combine our fundamental research
with an investment process that emphasizes both risk management and
relative-value investing to achieve competitive risk-adjusted returns.

• Customize portfolios to meet your clients’ specific tax objectives, income
requirements and risk tolerance

• Provide ongoing internal analysis of credit quality and underlying
fundamentals
