ISTB Fund Description

The iShares Core 1-5 Year USD Bond ETF tracks a broad USD-denominated bond index with 1-5 years remaining in maturities. Eligible sectors include US Treasury, global government-related bonds, MBS, US investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds, CMBS and ABS.

ISTB Factset Analytics Insight

ISTB covers a broad spectrum of short-dated USD-denominated fixed-income instruments including US Treasurys, government-related issues (US and non-US), MBS, CMBS, ABS and investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds. Over a third of the fund is allocated to Treasurys. All issues are USD-denominated. Following an index change on 6/3/14, the fund has become a strong Fit thanks to the fact that it tracks the same index as our benchmark, and is a viable one-stop core building block for a short-term, broad exposure. ISTB trades briskly each day, in sizeable volumes with thin spreads. Block liquidity is decent, but investors placing larger orders may still encounter some of the same sourcing challenges that are endemic to the bond market. ISTB charges an extremely low fee for its exposure, and tracking is tight, making it a very cost-effective option for this segment.
