QLTA Fund Description

The iShares Aaa-A Rated Corporate Bond ETF tracks a market-weighted index of dollar-denominated fixed-rate corporate bonds rated Aaa-A issued by US and non-US corporations with maturities of at least one year.

QLTA Factset Analytics Insight

QLTA reflects the broad investment-grade corporate market reasonably well even as it focuses on bonds with higher credit quality. It excludes the bonds rated BBB out of its investment-grade universe, sacrificing yield for safety. Unfortunately, its sensitivity to credit spreads is only slightly lower than that of our neutral benchmark, which allocates about half of its portfolio to bonds rated BBB. QLTA overweights short-term bonds at the expense of long-term bonds, which brings down its sensitivity to interest rates, but the real story here is its yield-to-maturity: QLTA has one of the lowest yields in the space. Whether the trade-off is worth it is up to you. QLTA charges one of the lowest expense ratios in the segment (15 bps) and trades reasonably well, with over $1M changing hands on most days.
