ABSTRACT
This article reports that after record issuance of inflation linked treasury bonds and notes last year, a similar but little-known security in the tax-exempt market is poised for growth in 2005, according to municipal underwriters, issuers, and investors. High-profile municipal issuers, such as New York City, the District of Columbia, and Massachusetts, have sold the bonds. And traders and salespeople said their wealthier and more sophisticated retail clients are showing increased demand for the bonds, which pay coupons based on the CPI.
