BlackRock launches iShares Short Maturity Municipal Bond ETF


BlackRock has launched the iShares Short Maturity Municipal Bond ETF (MEAR), an active fund managed by BlackRock’s municipal bond team. 

An active approach allows the portfolio management and research team to capitalise on municipal opportunities along the front of the yield curve and across the investment grade credit spectrum.

The fund seeks to maximise tax-free income through diversified exposure to short-term municipal bonds by investing in tax-exempt municipal bonds with maturities of less than five years. Under normal circumstances the portfolio will have an effective duration of 1.2 years or less.

iShares Short Maturity Municipal Bond ETF extends iShares current suite of short duration and municipal bond ETFs to provide investors with a wide range of investment choices backed by the investment excellence of BlackRock’s fixed income portfolio management team.
