ICSH Fund Description

The actively managed iShares Ultra Short-Term Bond ETF invests in ultra-short-term investment-grade fixed-and floating-rate government or corporate securities to achieve weighted-average portfolio maturity of less than 180 days.

ICSH Factset Analytics Insight

Following the success and popularity of NEAR, iShares launched an even-shorter maturity product, ICSH, in late 2013. ICSH is an actively managed ultra-short-term broad market bond fund. As its name implies, it aims for liquidity while seeking current income. The fund charges 18 bps, a hair cheaper than its SSgA counterpart (ULST). The fund has a very short duration, which might make it appealing for some in an uncertain rate environment. Trade ICSH with care as its market is virtually nonexistent. Those trading in size might see lower costs right out of the gate by working with liquidity providers or the issuer’s capital markets desk. Still, factoring in trading cost and expense ratio, investors are likely to experience negative returns holding all else equal.
