iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index
Management style
Passive
LQD, given it was first to market in this space, is easily one of the most popular corporate bond ETFs. The ETF is notable for a broad portfolio of bonds from the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, whose underlying liquidity may contribute tight tracking and subdued premiums / discounts. LQD differs from our benchmark in key ways. LQD only selects bonds that have at least three years to maturity, which gives it a longer weighted average maturity and increased interest rate risk. The fund is cheap to hold. In all, LQD offers liquid exposure to a somewhat-aggressive, yield-seeking basket of corporate bonds.
