In this episode of the RVW WealthWisdom podcast, Jonathan Gerber and Stephen Seo welcome BlackRock’s David Prince back onto the show to talk about BlackRock’s iBond ETFs. They discuss how bond ETFs have made it easier to create bond ladders that insulate against both interest rate risks as well as default risks through greater monitoring and diversification. They also discuss how the various quality factors influence credit risk assessments and the logic behind excluding callable bonds for greater predictability. Lastly, the group discusses how trading bonds through exchanges, instead of the traditional over-the-counter trading, reduces information asymmetry and leads to greater transparency and liquidity. The RVW WealthWisdom podcast is a production of RVW Wealth LLC.
