Fixed income ETFs
Overview
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. The all-time high discounts acted as a reflection of underlying market liquidity with ETFs investors real-time prices while the underlying market and NAVs were in catch-up mode. According to BlackRock, the four use cases for fixed income ETFs are liquidity management, strategic asset allocation, tactical asset allocation and derivative replacement.
