Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to credit bonds with an intermediate term to maturity, putting its interest rate risk and yield generally between short-term options (such as CSJ) and longer-term fixed income ETFs (such as CLY). This ETF is probably too specific for those seeking broad-based bond exposure in connection with a buy and hold strategy; those investors would be better served by AGG or BND. This fund can, however, be a useful tool for fine tuning fixed income exposure. Specifically, CIU may be useful for enhancing current returns without taking on excessive interest rate risk. CIU's expenses are in line with other ETFs offering similar exposure, such as VCIT, and the underlying portfolio is reasonably well diversified.
