Kroll Bond Rating Agency Releases Research Report on ETFs & the Pursuit of Liquidity

NEW YORK--()--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) has released a new research report entitled “ETFs & the Pursuit of Liquidity”. The report makes the following key points:

  • Over the past 15 years, growth in exchange traded funds (ETFs) products has been explosive. Investment managers perceive ETFs to be an efficient means to gain exposure quickly for defensive purposes or aggressive and opportunistic reasons.
  • What has become a larger selling point for ETFs is the perceived liquidity advantage this structure holds over traditional bond mutual fund structures.
  • But that liquidity is not free. There is always a cost. The question is whether the investor recognizes that cost.
