LMBS Fund Description

The First Trust Low Duration Opportunities ETF is an actively managed fund that invests in a variety of mortgage-backed securities with target duration of less than 3 years. The fund may also take positions in US Treasury futures or options.

LMBS Factset Analytics Insight

LMBS is a one-of-a-kind actively managed MBS ETF. Not only does it have a duration target, it also reaches beyond agency-backed MBS to include non-agency and commercial MBS, for relative value and yield. As such, the portfolio carries material credit risk that is greater than that of pure-play agency-MBS funds. The fund's low-duration mandate increases its appeal to investors who are nervous about rising interest rates. LMBS is readily tradable, with decent daily volume and small spreads. While it has a liquid underlying basket, institutions should work with market makers on block trades, as some underlying non-agency-backed MBS and CMBS can be hard to access. LMBS charges a fee that is a bit steep even for an actively managed bond fund, and the fund's short-duration mandate can lead to high portfolio turnover, with further implications for holding costs.
