Municipal Investment Trust
Municipal investment trusts are generally available through brokers and usually have a sales charge and a minimum investment requirement. One of the primary advantages that this type of trust offers is a monthly payout of income, as opposed to the quarterly or semiannual payment of interest common with most individual municipal issues.
