After all, if individual investors and advisors had allocations to municipals with yields barely over 1% at the beginning of 2022, then they should now salivate at the prospect of yields exceeding 3% (before adjusting for tax benefits). With tax-loss harvesting opportunities ending, we expect that high-earning investors will be motivated to increase their tax-exempt holdings over time. Higher yields not only mean greater income but also greater portfolio stability if a deeper recession transpires.The tax-exempt primary bond market was busy at the start of 2022, but higher rates stunted the pace of issuance later on, consistent with our forecast. The supply picture going forward is uncertain, as usual, yet future issuance will likely remain subdued as the cost of borrowing is higher and municipal balance sheets are still flush with cash from pandemic-era stimulus.Both inflows and lower supply should support municipal valuations in 2023. The quick 4.1% rally in the fourth quarter indicated that these effects are underway. The rebound may lure more investors back with attractive yields and reduce the possibility of negative returns this year. With tax-equivalent yields of 6.0% (or meaningfully higher for residents in high-tax states who invest in corresponding state funds), municipals offer great value compared with other fixed income sectors and potentially even equities, especially with the odds of a recession increasing.

Globally, the fixed-income market is a key source of financing for businesses and governments. In fact, the total market value outstanding of corporate and government bonds is significantly larger than that of equity securities. Similarly, the fixed-income market, which is also called the debt market or bond market, represents a significant investing opportunity for institutions as well as individuals. Pension funds, mutual funds, insurance companies, and sovereign wealth funds, among others, are major fixed-income investors. Retirees who desire a relatively stable income stream often hold fixed-income securities. Clearly, understanding how to value fixed-income securities is important to investors, issuers, and financial analysts. We focus on the valuation of traditional (option-free) fixed-rate bonds, although other debt securities, such as floating-rate notes and money market instruments, are also covered.

ESG factors can be incorporated into fixed income investment strategies using three approaches: integration, screening and thematic. Investors select between, or combine, these approaches based on their desired outcomes. This may be to enhance their risk-return profile, avoid specific sectors or drive capital towards particular environmental and/or social goals.

Material ESG factors are identified and assessed alongside traditional financial factors when forming an investment decision about a specific issuer or security, or the overall portfolio structure. In fixed income, this is primarily done to manage downside risk. Investors apply a range of techniques to identify risks that might remain undiscovered without the analysis of specific ESG data and broad ESG trends.

An active approach is essential for investing in the vast and complex global bond universe. At Dodge & Cox, we employ a flexible and opportunistic approach to investing in global fixed income that relies on the core tenets of all of our investment strategies: a focus on bottom-up security selection, a long-term investment horizon, strict valuation discipline, and team-based portfolio decision-making. This approach enables us to focus on the segments we deem to be most attractive and diversify exposures across credit, currency, and interest rate markets. We believe it also enhances the risk-return profile of a broader fixed income portfolio. Drawing on our large and experienced investment team, we emphasize areas of the market, such as credit and emerging markets, which we believe offer a more attractive investment opportunity set and tend to provide higher income. We believe currency is an important lever for return, but are highly selective in adding currency exposure and require a high risk-adjusted return outlook to merit a place in the Dodge & Cox Global Bond Fund. Using this approach, we are able to build a diverse global bond portfolio with a risk-return profile that we believe is significantly more attractive than that of global bond benchmarks.
