BSV FactSet Analytics Insight

BSV is a large, liquid ETF that holds a mix ofThe exposure comes cheap investment-grade, dollar-denominated debt issued in the US with 1-5 years remaining in maturity. Treasurys dominate the basket which also includes corporates, agency issues and a small amount of foreign debt issued in USD. “Short-term” is in the eye of beholder: The inclusion of bonds maturing in 3-5 years gives BSV a longer-dated portfolio than our benchmark, which tracks bonds in the 1-3 year bucket exclusively. The hefty chunk of longer-dated bonds increases BSV’s weighted average maturity, interest-rate risk and yield compared with our benchmark.

The exposure comes cheap—a low fee, solid tracking and strong trading volume keep all-in costs low. We estimate underlying liquidity to be middling, which is par for the course. The lone, small drawback for BSV is the issuer’s lack of transparency, as holdings are only posted monthly with a two week lag. Note: Former rival ISTB changed indexes in June 2014 to include high-yield bonds, which BSV avoids.
