How it works

To build a laddered portfolio of corporates or municipals, we equally weight investment-grade bonds by maturities along a defined segment of the yield curve. As bonds mature, their proceeds are reinvested into longer maturities, which typically have higher yields. Through continuous reinvestment in longer-dated bonds, the overall portfolio benefits from higher income during periods of rising rates.
