SMB Factset Analytics Insight

SMB is a cost-effective fund that provides marketlike exposure to short-term muni bonds with maturities of no more than 6 years, though it does hold a few longer-term issues in its portfolio. SMB heavily optimizes its portfolio, holding about just a handful of its index's constituents, creating a tilt toward the short end of the curve. SMB underweights the 5-7 year maturity bucket, giving it a lower average maturity and effective duration, thus lowering its interest-rate risk. Over half its portfolio is made up of revenue bonds, while GO bonds account for almost all the rest. SMB trades fairly, with workable spreads, though it isn't as liquid as some competitors. Those looking to trade in volume will likely be frustrated by the hard-to-trade nature of the underlying munis. SMB has a low expense ratio for its segment but tracking is far from ideal, often trailing its index by multiples of its expense ratio, so holding costs are a concern here.
