Seeking Interest-Rate Certainty

Investors can often take comfort that fixed-income holdings are lowering overall risk in their portfolios – but that doesn’t mean risk is gone. One concern with bond ETFs is the fluctuating yield curve, which hurts bond prices when interest rates move higher. Fixed-maturity bond ETFs look to provide a little more certainty. Since investors know when those bonds will mature, they’re in a better position to receive their principal back on maturity and cut interest-rate risk via laddering. That’s ideal for needs like funding college educations and upcoming liabilities with a known date in advance. This motif is designed to provide low-cost bond ETFs with diverse maturities, risk ratings as well as various segments of bonds, including investment grade corporate, high-yield corporate, AMT-free and municipal.
