VBNDVident Core U.S. Bond Strategy ETF
VBND Fund Description
VBND tracks a multi-factor-weighted USD bond index that is based on sector tail risk, security valuation and issuer corporate governance.
VBND Factset Analytics Insight
VBND uses a complex multi-factor selection and weighting scheme that differs greatly from a market-value-weighted approach. The fund employs a top-down strategy to allocate across a broad range of sectors using a variety of factors, including relative valuation, sector default rates and macro inputs. Corporate issuers of any credit rating are screened for good governance and creditworthiness. High-yield bonds are capped at 20% and TIPS sectors at 15%. Bonds are weighted within each sector using another set of factors: yield, duration yield, credit risk, etc. The fund lands in the intermediate maturity segment due to a duration target of three to seven years. Overall, the fund delivers rigorous if complex rules-based alternative exposure to the broad intermediate bond market. The Index is rebalanced monthly and reconstituted quarterly. Prior to Jan. 6, 2016, VBND tracked a slightly different index, the Vident Core U.S. Bond Index.
