Since their introduction in 2002, fixed income ETFs have helped investors to:
Across indexed and active strategies, ETFs have expense ratios that are significantly lower than mutual funds.3 These savings can have a meaningful impact on performance, especially in a low-yield environment.
ETFs' robust secondary market trading allows investors to tap into market liquidity more easily and reallocate more quickly than they can with single-CUSIP bond holdings.
Index-based and actively managed ETFs report holdings daily, increasing transparency for investors performing daily portfolio due diligence and attribution for risk management.
ETFs precisely cover the entire term structure along the yield curve, so investors can fine tune a portfolio’s interest rate risk (duration) to match market views or client liabilities.
Modulate Credit Risk
Ranging from investment-grade credit to crossover debt to senior loans to high yield, ETFs allow investors to control the amount of credit risk in a portfolio with ease and transparency.
Ways to Use Fixed Income ETFs
Investors implement fixed income ETFs for a broad array of objectives, including:
Creating custom portfolios using indexes across a wide array of bond subsectors
Building adaptable beta solutions to equitize cash or provide easy reinvestment of accumulated coupon payments
Targeting trends by rotating efficiently in and out of asset classes based on macro, technical or fundamental trends

Investing involves risk including the risk of loss of principal.
Bonds generally present less short-term risk and volatility than stocks, but contain interest rate risk (as interest rates raise, bond prices usually fall); issuer default risk; issuer credit risk; liquidity risk; and inflation risk. These effects are usually pronounced for longer-term securities. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
