BIL Fund Description

The SPDR Bloomberg Barclays 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF tracks a market-weighted index of all publicly issued zero-coupon US Treasury bills with a maturity of at least 1 month, but less than 3 months.

BIL Factset Analytics Insight

BIL’s take on ultra-short-term Treasurys is entirely valid even if it doesn’t conform to our view of the space. The fund invests in Treasury bills with three months or less to maturity, in contrast with our benchmark that covers Treasurys with 1-12 months remaining to maturity. As such, BIL takes on less interest rate risk and offers lower yields. Safety has a price: In a low-interest rate environment, costs for this cashlike vehicle may exceed the yield. (Retail investors should consider FDIC-insured CDs as a conservative alternative or SHV as a relatively more aggressive alternative).

Still, investors who buy BIL won't be alone: the fund has a hefty asset base. It tracks its index very tightly and trades well, holding the line on costs as best it can. BIL lands on the Opportunities List for cashlike safety at low cost.
