MBSD Fund Description

MBSD tracks an index of agency-backed mortgage-backed securities that aims for 3.25-4.25 years of effective duration. The index uses a proprietary weighting scheme.

MBSD Factset Analytics Insight

MBSD charges 20 bps to track a proprietarily weighted index of MBSs to achieve and maintain an effective duration of 3.25-4.25 years. Unlike other conventional market-value-weighted broad MBS indexes with slow-moving durations, the fund provides predictability in interest-rate risk exposure. With explicit and implicit government guarantee, agency-backed MBSs carry negligible credit risk but higher yields due to prepayment risk. In combination, MBSD offers investors a unique exposure to generate higher income than Treasurys and with predictable interest-rate risk. Trade the fund with care during its early days. Check back in 6 months for a first look at its tracking performance.
