single-state municipal bond fund

Definition

State mutual fund that primarily focuses on investing in state obligations. This type of mutual fund can benefit investors that are trying to shelter funds from a declining stock market, but can be a risky investment if the state's economy starts to suffer. The interest that they pay is exempt not only from federal taxes, but state levies as well.
