Analyst Report

This ETF provides exposure to the mortgage backed security slice of the bond market, a corner of the finance world that has seen its share of troubles over the past few years. While MBS funds were at the heart of the subprime crisis, this product invests in liquid, stable bonds that are unlikely to default, pay out solid rates of interest, and provide valuable diversification benefits to a portfolio. Due to these benefits, most investors should consider adding some MBS holdings to their portfolio, albeit in a very small amount. Although VMBS is the cheapest of the three, it also is the least popular and as such may not be appropriate for traders who are seeking tight bid ask spreads and high levels of liquidity. However, the fund does offer significant benefits in terms of total diversification as it holds well over 300 securities in total, by far the most in the Category. Thanks to this impressive diversification as well as the fund's rock bottom expense ratio, long-term investors should consider buying this fund if they are looking for higher levels of exposure to the MBS market.
