I learned the art of buying individual munis from my father starting in the 70’s. I would never buy or trust a muni fund to act in my best interest. The analysis time, per issue purchases has increased from 60 seconds in the 80’s to, sometimes, several hours these days, thanks to the changing nature of the environment and owing to the information available through sites like EMMA. Differences in mark-ups between dealers is significant but go away when long term BD’s realize I’m shopping.
