A solid fund, but there are better options for investment-grade corporate bond exposure.


| |

IShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF LQD is a decent pick for investment-grade corporate bond market exposure. However, its exclusion of bonds with less than three years until maturity increases its sensitivity to changing interest rates and prevents it from accurately representing the entirety of the investment opportunity set available to U.S. corporate bond Morningstar Category peers. It also charges a higher fee than several of its closest indexed peers. These considerations support a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral.
