Summary

| |

IShares Edge U.S. Fixed Income Balanced Risk ETF FIBR is a solid strategy which balances its exposure to interest-rate and credit risk to improve diversification. This is a sound premise as these factors tend to be negatively correlated. But that gives this portfolio greater downside risk and a higher correlation with U.S. stocks than the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Universal Bond Index. It isn’t clear that the fund will offer better compensation for that risk over the long term, so it earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral.
