MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) - Duane A. McAllister, CFA, tax-exempt portfolio manager, BMO Intermediate Tax-Free Fund (MITFX), will speak at the annual SunStar Strategic Media Briefing on March 19, 2013. The event, to be held at the Hilton New York, is for journalists only and showcases undiscovered funds.
McAllister will discuss "2013 - The Year of Transition?" followed by a question and answer session. He will also share his muni market outlook for 2013. The fund selects bonds via both top-down and bottom-up analyses to examine credit quality, yield curve and market inefficiencies. The fund employs broad diversification and a credit scoring system to monitor risk. McAllister also co-manages the BMO Short Tax-Free Fund (MTFYX, MTFIX) and the BMO Ultra Short Tax-Free Fund (MUYSX, MUISX). While each of these funds is focused on different segments of the yield curve, they all use the same investment philosophy and process.
