  • High Yield, Shorter Duration Focus
    Index comprises highest yielding municipal bonds with maturities of 1-12 years, which potentially provides lower sensitivity to interest rates than all maturity high yield municipal bond funds

  • Enhanced Liquidity Feature
    Index includes investment-grade exposure for added liquidity

  • Diverse Sector Exposure and Low Default Rates
    Index covers wide range of muni sectors and securities with historically low default rates*
