About the Event 

SMITH's High-Yield Municipal Bond Conference explores how our market is making intelligent decisions about the future infrastructure that will support the American Economy.
We will look at some major trends investors can explore in order to better understand the nature and durability of revenues pledged to support repayment of bonds over the next 30 years. For example, demographic trends such as the "Silver Tsunami" will not only impact healthcare and senior living, but also where people will move as well as how long they can work. Technology changes, such as robots, 3D printers and autonomous vehicles, will impact the workforce, transportation and redefine manufacturing. Moreover, the events of today are creating stresses on the underpinning assumptions that supported yesterday's investment models for high yield bonds.
