MEAR Factset Analytics Insight

MEAR presents a viable alternative for investors looking for additional cash management tools. The active manager aims to provide tax-exempt current income through a portfolio of investment-grade, AMT-free, short-term muni securities. With a target portfolio maturity of less than 3 years, MEAR can be a useful cash management tool for nontax-advantaged accounts. Given its active approach, MEAR's exposure can change rapidly, so investors should monitor fund's holdings. Traders face some obstacles here: the order book is generally thin, and spreads are sometimes significant. The less-liquid underlying assets will also make dealing in creation units a challengepar for the course in the muni space. MEAR charges a very reasonable fee for active management.
