LQD Fund Description

The iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF tracks a market-weighted index of US corporate investment-grade bonds across the maturity spectrum.

LQD Factset Analytics Insight

LQD is easily one of the most popular corporate bond ETFs with truly massive liquidity and huge AUM. The ETF is notable for a broad portfolio of bonds from the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, whose underlying liquidity may contribute tight tracking and subdued premiums / discounts. LQD differs from our benchmark in key ways. LQD only selects bonds that have at least three years to maturity, which gives it a longer weighted average maturity and increased interest rate risk. On Tradability, LQD is a standout: it trades in bulk daily, with very narrow spreads. It's also cheap to hold. In all, LQD offers supremely liquid exposure to a somewhat-aggressive, yield-seeking basket of corporate bonds, landing it on our Opportunities list.
