Fixed income ETFs offer a range of exposures to investors from government and corporates to emerging market debt and inflation-protection bonds. They faced their toughest test during the period of vanishing liquidity in March 2020 as the rapid spread of coronavirus sent shockwaves through global markets.

According to BlackRock, the four use cases for fixed income ETFs are liquidity management, strategic asset allocation, tactical asset allocation and derivative replacement.
