SLQD Fund Description

SLQD tracks a market-value-weighted index of investment-grade, US dollar-denominated corporate bonds with 0-5 years remaining to maturity.

SLQD Factset Analytics Insight

SLQD is a short-maturity version of iShares’ popular LQD, which targets US investment-grade corporate debt. Our benchmark for short-term corporate debt ETFs targets 0-3 year maturities, while SLQD has significant allotments in the 3-5 year range. That adds some interest-rate risk, but also a higher YTM. The fund largely aligns with our benchmark in terms of sector weightings and credit quality. Daily volume is respectable and spreads are tight. Institutional trading should not be a problem, as the underlying basket is liquid for this space. Expenses are low and tracking is tight. For the investor willing to take on slightly more risk for slightly more yield, SLQD is a very attractive option.
