Analyst Report

This ETF offers targeted exposure to commercial mortgage-backed securities. CMBS separates itself from other offerings in the Mortgage Backed Securities ETFdb Category by focusing specifically on debt which is deemed to be “ERISA eligible”. This means that the underlying holdings must meet the minimum standards for pension plans established by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). As such, CMBS focuses on types of bonds that are not necessarily included in broad-based bond funds such as AGG or BND, so this fund might not be all that useful for those building a long-term portfolio (since it is a bit targeted). Nonetheless, CMBS can certainly be very useful as a tactical tool for establishing exposure to this segment in the market for those who believe it offers superior risk adjusted returns or is poised for a period of strong performance. CMBS tends to be tilted towards the long end of the duration spectrum, so investors will be taking on a fair amount of interest rate risk along with some moderate credit risk with this investment. There are a handful of other ETFs in the Mortgage Backed Securities ETFdb Category; investors would be wise to compare the risk and return characteristics of these products before establishing a position.
