% of Market Value

The maturity breakdown above is based on Weighted Average Life (WAL). WAL is the average length of time to the repayment of principal for the securities in the fund. This metric considers the likelihood that bonds will be called or prepaid before the scheduled maturity date.

as of 22-Sep-2016

% of Market Value

Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the fund are received from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch and converted to the equivalent S&P major rating category. This breakdown is provided by BlackRock and takes the median rating of the three agencies when all three agencies rate a security the lower of the two ratings if only two agencies rate a security and one rating if that is all that is provided. Unrated securities do not necessarily indicate low quality. Below investment-grade is represented by a rating of BB and below. Ratings and portfolio credit quality may change over time.

Price Yield Calculator

Price Yield Calculator

The calculator provides clients with an indication of an ETF's yield and duration for a given market price. The ACF Yield is the discount rate that equates the ETF's aggregate cash flows (i.e., the sum of the cash flows of the ETF's holdings) to a given ETF price. The cash flows are based on the yield to worst methodology in which a bond's cash flows are assumed to occur at the call date (if applicable) or maturity, whichever results in the lowest yield for that bond holding. For a given ETF price, this calculator will estimate the corresponding ACF Yield and spread to the relevant government reference security yield. Note that the ACF Yield will differ from the ETF's "Weighted Avg YTM For more information on Aggregate Cash Flow Yield, see info here. The Aggregate Cash Flow (“ACF”) Yield is the discount rate that equates the aggregate cash flows of the ETF's individual fund holdings (specifically the cash flows corresponding to the lower of the yield to call or yield to maturity of a given security) to a stated market price. In contrast, the weighted average yield to maturity is a market value weighted average of the yields of the ETF's individual holdings based on the prior day's net asset value. The ACF Yield allows an investor to compare the yield and spread for varying ETF market prices in order to help understand the impact of intraday market movements. The ACF of the ETF is the sum of the individual bond cash flows “to worst” (i.e. either to call or to maturity, whichever results in the lowest yield for the ETF). The ACF Yield does not make any adjustments based on the cost incurred to acquire an ETF or the impact of the ETF’s management fee.
