  • The Bond Buyer: Muni Snub from HQLA Creates Buzz Among Buy-side Analysts
    Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed income at Frost Investment Advisors, discusses municipal credits. "I do believe, on margin, this will increase the required risk premium on municipal bonds over U.S. government bonds as some banks will likely cut back their allocation to the sector," Elwick wrote in an email. "But, this does not mean banks are not going to invest in any municipal bonds going forward; it's a change on the margin in my opinion. "Certainly relative yields may increase marginally higher as banks are some of the larger buyers of some - not all -- municipal bonds. But the largest investors in the sector continue to be money managers and retail investors, and this ruling doesn't really color this sector from these two sets of investors," he added.

  • Bloomberg News: Treasuries Irresistible to America's Banks Awash in Cash

  • MarketWatch: Investors begin bracing stock and bond portfolios for first rate hikes
    Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed income at Frost Investment Advisors, discusses his strategy for the coporate bond market. “Almost the entire sector of the corporate bond market has higher correlations,” to Treasurys, said Jeffery Elswick, fixed income manager at Frost Investment Advisors. So instead of making plays on the entire sector, Elswick said he is, “spending more time with individual idea names.”

  • The Bond Buyer: Fund Managers Eye Economy as They Set 2nd Quarter Strategy
    Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed income at Frost Investment Advisors, comments on the macro-economy as a guide in allocation strategy. "Our expectation is that the macro-economy will pick up some momentum heading into the spring," Elswick said. "To the extent we begin to see more tangible improvements in the U.S. economy validating that the recent pull back in economic growth has had more to do with poor weather and less to do with some other type of underlying problems, we would look to lower our average maturity closer to the six to seven-year range." Elswick added."If on the other hand, we unexpectedly see the macro-environment in the U.S. not improve even as the spring rolls around, then we would look to maintain, or even increase somewhat, our current eight-year maturity profile," he said.

  • Bloomberg News: Bond Allocation Probe Seen Symptomatic of Race for Yield
    Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed income at Frost Investment Advisors, speaks on the federal investigation into how banks allocate corporate-bond offerings. “Investors aren’t being treated equally,” said Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed-income at San Antonio-based Frost Investment Advisors, which oversees about $5 billion in fixed-income securities. “We’ve had a broker-dealer tell us there’s nothing we can do. We’ve had another say that unless we did much more volume with them in the secondary market, there was very little we could do.”

  • MarketWatch: Treasury Yields Cap Longest Climb in Two Years
    "It's pretty transparent that ETFs, certainly in the rates market, have had to sell securities," said Jeffery Elswick, director of fixed income at Frost Investment Advisors. "When we’ve seen some of the ETFs or mutual funds sell, it translates into lower prices pretty quickly."
