Escrowed to maturity municipal bonds (ETM) bonds are another type of pre-refunded municipal bond. With escrowed to maturity municipal bonds, the money which is placed in the escrow account is used to pay principal and interest through the bond’s originally scheduled maturity date.
However, the bond issuer can still reserve the right to call the bond if conditions warrant it. This is in contrast to what people normally refer to as pre-refunded bonds which are issued so that an existing bond issue can be called before maturity.

David Waring was the founder of LearnBonds.com and has been a major contributor to the extensive library of investing news and information available on the site. Until the launch of Learnbonds.com in late 2011 there was no single site on the internet catering exclusively to the individual bond investor. This was true even though more individuals own stocks than bonds. Learn Bonds was launched to fill that gap.
