3 ways ETFs have revolutionized the bond market

Fifteen years ago this week the first bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) debuted, changing the way investors can access fixed income markets. At first, only four iShares bond ETFs were available, with just a small amount of assets and access limited to Treasuries and U.S. investment grade credit. Today there are over 300 bond ETFs in the U.S. with more than $500 billion in total asset under management (AUM), offering entry into almost every sector of the bond market (source: BlackRock and Bloomberg, as of 6/30/2017).
