MMA AAA MEDIAN MUNICIPAL BENCHMARK


PDF
The MMA AAA Median is the only municipal benchmark created directly by the leading institutions of the municipal market and is the most consistent benchmark for daily municipal yield change.
  • The MMA AAA Median yield data emanates from 38 institutions representing the variety of dealer and investor opinions.


  • The MMA AAA Median represents a “mid-market” yield ( a “mid market” yield represents the mid-point between the “bid” and “offered” side of the market. ) allowing for a more accurate portrayal of cross-market spread relationships – especially to Libor and BMA swaps.

  • Levels are based on a “Natural ‘AAA’ G.O. credit” (i.e. not pre-refunded or insured) with Maryland G.O. used as a guide.

  • Current Coupon Rate: A coupon rate that is in line with interest rates on new issues of municipal securities being sold at the current time. A bond with a current coupon would be trading at a price close to par and would have a yield to maturity approximately equal to its coupon rate. (provided by the MSRB glossary)
