BAB will offer exposure to an index which is designed to track the performance of U.S. dollar-denominated Build America Bonds publicly issued by U.S. states and territories, and their political subdivisions, in the U.S. market. Unlike most municipal bonds, Build America Bonds are taxable securities, eliminating one of the advantages that has traditionally allowed municipalities to issue debt at lower rates than otherwise comparable corporate debt. Here's the unique element of Build America Bonds: the U.S. Treasury makes a payment to the issuers of direct-payment Build America Bonds equal to 35% of the total interest payable to investors. So if a municipality issues a $100 million Build America Bond with a taxable coupon of 10%, the issuer would make an annual interest payment to investors of $10 million and would receive a $3.5 million payment from the Treasury, resulting in an effective interest rate of 6.5%. BAB invests primarily in investment grade debts, giving investors safety during unstable markets, and with an average coupon rate above 5%, the ETF will also offer and attractive yield.
