PFF Factset Analytics Insight

PFF targets preferred securities irrespective of credit rating, providing a broad and diversified portfolio. The fund’s holdings reflect the nature of the market in that financial institutions dominate the holdings. (PFF happens to track the same index we've chosen as a neutral benchmark.) To limit concentration risk, the fund caps any single issuer’s weight at 10%. PFF charges a competitive fee and tracks its index reasonably well. The fund has strong on-screen liquidity and tight spreads, making all-in costs low relative to peer ETFs. PFF particularly stands out for strong block liquidity, making it the fund of choice for large traders.
