Our Mission

City National's mission is to provide the ultimate banking experience for successful entrepreneurs and professionals through an uncommon dedication to extraordinary service, proactive advice and total financial solutions.

Fixed Income Management

Portfolio Stability, Cash Flow & Returns

Fixed income investments can act as "the ballast" of your portfolio, while providing cash flow and healthy return. Municipal bonds offer you tax-free income, helping you minimize your taxes.

The Advantage of Having a Bond Professional

Because there is no central market for bonds as there is for equities, engaging a bond professional can give you a distinct advantage. At City National Bank we work with multiple fixed income managers that offer specializations across the diverse universe of corporate, government, municipal and international bonds. Our well-established institutional trading networks give you access to a broad range of municipal, government and corporate securities, as well as other segments of the market.

City National Bank's active bond management focuses on:

  • Helping you achieve your goals
  • Controlling risk
  • Finding opportunities
  • Total return
  • Customizing a bond strategy that complements your asset allocation

Monitoring Your Risk-Return Ratio

At City National Bank we help design your bond portfolio to help obtain the most efficient risk-return ratio that aligns with your goals. We can show you how your portfolio will perform in different interest rate environments using:

  • Thorough quantitative and qualitative processes
  • Computer modeled simulation studies

Our systematic "credit watch" and ongoing monitoring also help to minimize the risk of your bond portfolio.

Tailored Strategies for Tax-sensitive Portfolios

If you are seeking to maximize your after-tax income, we can tailor a tax-exempt bond strategy for you. Numerous strategies are employed, including:

  • Opportunistic swaps to extend or reduce portfolio maturity
  • Callable bonds to add yield
  • National diversification to boost yield; choosing out-of-state versus in-state bonds
