This ETF focuses on investment grade corporate debt that is scheduled to mature in 2020, giving investors a tool to obtain very targeted fixed income exposure. BSCK will behave in the same way as an individual bond would; the interest rate risk will decline over time, and there will ultimately be a return of the initial investment when the underlying bonds mature and the portfolio converts to cash. That makes BSCK unique from the majority of fixed income ETFs that maintain a relatively constant effective duration and operate in perpetuity. While BSCK delivers an experience similar to that of investing in an individual bond, it also brings the immediate diversification across issuers and sectors that can dramatically reduce overall risk. BSCK can be useful in a number of different ways. For investors planning against future obligations, the known maturity date on this position may allow them to match assets with liabilities. BSCK can also be useful as a tool for fine tuning interest rate exposure for investors aiming for a specific duration on their fixed income portfolio.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for BSCK on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Corporate Bonds with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
