Disciplined Duration MBS Index Funds (MBSD)

FlexShares' Disciplined Duration MBS Index Fund offers more exposure to mortgage-backed securities.

MBSD attempts to give investors mortgage-back securities (MBS) benefits while also limiting effective duration contraction and extension variability. Duration is the sensitivity of a fixed income security’s price to a change in interest rates. Historically it has been a viable alternative for individual and institutional investors to help minimize risk with MBS securities. Unlike legacy MBS products, MBSD tracks an index comprised of MBS securities from a variety of U.S. agencies.

  • Why Wellness? A Deeper Dialogue into the Eye-Opening Results Recorded: May 23 2018 52 mins
    FlexShares; Barnaby Riedel; David Partain
    In December 2017, FlexShares ETFs engaged third-party research firm1 Riedel Strategy to conduct a national study of occupational wellness among financial advisors, to better understand the advisor experience and help advisors live better, more productive and satisfied lives. Nearly 700 people completed and returned the survey – giving us insight into the health and wellness of advisors from a range of firms across the United States. What we found, coming in the midst of a long-running period of market stability, might seem counterintuitive: Advisors are under a lot of stress. Conversely, they also are very satisfied with their occupational choice.

    Flexshares
    SKOR and LKOR ETFs use nontraditional indices based on US corporate bond credit scores, which we believe offer a leading indicator of rating changes. To support liquidity, the indices are limited to only the most liquid issues. To identify quality, the indices focus on the metrics we believe matter most in fixed income: management efficiency, profitability and solvency.
