This ETF offers targeted exposure to municipal bonds from across the country maturing in 2017, giving investors a "yield experience" that aligns more closely with holding individual bonds. IBMF has a limited life span, and as such might not be appropriate for those looking for low maintenance bond exposure over the long term. For investors looking to fine tune interest rate risk or plan against future liabilities using municipal bonds, IBMF can be a cost-efficient and effective option.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for IBMF 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 National Munis with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
