View Abstract

One way we can attempt to judge the best investment strategy for nucleardecommissioning trust funds (NDTs) is to examine past after-tax returns of variousinvestment options. The authors of this chapter make such an evaluation. Theynote that no passively managed asset class allowed in qualified NDTs hasproduced real after-tax returns. They conclude that an active, rather than apassive, investment strategy is necessary, and they stress the advisability ofshortand intermediate -term fixed-income securities such as municipal bonds.However, when the authors applied the hypothetical 15 percent tax rate proposedin a new Congressional bill (HR 4653), several asset classes did provide realaftertax returns.
