Nine Basis Points With This ETF!

June 3rd, 2009

pimcoPimco’s launch should be a big wake-up call to ETF investors.

Has anyone noticed that Pimco, as of yesterday, is offering (now higher-yielding, lower-priced) short-term U.S. Treasuries at an expense ratio of 9 bps (0.09%)? Hougan notes that the new fund (NYSE Arca: TUZ) traded 300,000 shares on its first day, and I expect it’ll be trading a lot more than that. Pimco’s got BRAND in fixed income, and the forthcoming launch of six more ETFs (along with all sorts of other plans) indicates that it is just dipping its toes in the ETF market so far … and is planning to jump into the pool in a big way (liquidity, transparency).

PIMCO Enters ETF Business With a Bang

June 2nd, 2009

pimcoAfter months of talk, one of the most exciting launches yet in the exchange traded fund (ETF) business is set to happen today: Pacific Investment Management Co. (PIMCO) is now an ETF provider.

PIMCO is the leader in fixed-income management, so it’s fitting that their first offering  is the PIMCO 1-3 Year U.S. Treasury Index Fund (TUZ), which focuses on low-yielding short-term Treasuries. The launch is especially exciting, because it’s going to go head-to-head with the grandfather of Treasury ETFs, iShares Barclays 1-3 Year Treasury Bond (SHY).

PIMCO recognizes that competition is fierce, but they are also sensitive to the fact that current yields are close to historic lows. To lure those looking for a strong fixed-income brand name at a reasonable price, the fund will have a 0.09% expense ratio after waiving a portion of the fees for at least a year. That’s less than any other bond ETF tracked by Morningstar, notes Ian Salisbury for The Wall Street Journal. SHY’s expense ratio is 0.15%.
