POSITIVES AND RISKS

High expense ratio hinders performance. On total assets of $97.28 million, BSE maintains a high expense ratio compared to its Municipal Single State peers of 1.75% to cover all operating costs. Brokerage costs for the fund to buy and sell shares are not included in the expense ratio. As BSE is a closed end fund, it has no front end or back end load.
Manager tenure is a net positive but performance record lags managerial peers. Substandard fund managers tend to be replaced, so a long tenure is usually a good sign that a fund is achieving its objectives. The BlackRock New York Muni Inc Qly has been managed by Timothy T. Browse for the last 9 years. Over that period, the manager was able to capture more actual gains in excess of the expected return than just 15% of other fund managers.
