Fund highlights
  • Exposure to the short-term U.S. investment grade bond market through a portfolio designed for investors who value ESG principles
  • Offers high quality, investment grade exposure with similar risk and return to the Bloomberg 1–5 Year US Aggregate Bond Index
  • Core complement for investors seeking to manage duration exposure
  • Follows a passively managed, index sampling approach

Fund description

The Fund employs a passive management (or “indexing”) approach, investing in a diversified portfolio of U.S. investment grade bonds that satisfy certain environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) criteria. The Fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the Bloomberg MSCI 1-5 Year US Aggregate ESG Select Index.

Index description

The Bloomberg MSCI 1-5 Year US Aggregate ESG Select Index (the “Index”) uses a rules-based methodology that seeks to provide investment exposure that generally replicates a modified version the Bloomberg 1-5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (the “Base Index”) through a portfolio of securities that adhere to predetermined ESG criteria. The Index is composed of U.S. government securities, debt securities issued by U.S. corporations, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, asset-based securities and U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities issued by non-U.S. governments and corporations. The Index is rebalanced monthly.

Index provider: Bloomberg MSCI

Important fund notice

Effective 30 Jun 2023, the name of the Nuveen Enhanced Yield 1-5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF was changed to Nuveen ESG 1-5 Year U.S Aggregate Bond ETF and the investment strategy incorporated an ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investing objective. With this change, the benchmark also changed to the NUSA Custom Index.

Fund data

Performance

  • Average annual total returns
  • Morningstar Ratings

Average annual total returns

Morningstar ratings

Morningstar ratings are based on historical risk-adjusted total returns, which are not indicative of future results.

Performance data shown represents past performance and does not predict or guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that shares redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Total returns for a period of less than one year are cumulative. Returns assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Market price returns are based on the closing market price. For performance current to the most recent month-end, call 800.752.8700.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price as opposed to net asset value. As a result, an investor may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. In addition, brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Fund shares are not individually redeemable directly with the Fund, but blocks of shares may be acquired from the Fund and tendered for redemption to the Fund by certain institutional investors in Creation Units.

*The NUSA Custom Index is defined as the blended returns of the ICE BofA Enhanced Yield 1-5 Year U.S. Broad Bond Index (through market close on June 30, 2023) and the Bloomberg MSCI 1-5 Year U.S. Aggregate ESG Select Index (from July 1, 2023).

Maturity breakdown in years

Credit quality

Ratings shown are given by one of the following national rating agencies: S&P, Moody's or Fitch. Credit ratings are subject to change. If all three agencies provide a rating for a security, an average of the ratings is used; if two of the three agencies rate a security, an average of the two is used; and if only one rating agency rates a security, that rating is used. AAA, AA, A, and BBB are investment grade ratings; BB, B, CCC/CC/C and D are below-investment grade ratings. U.S. Treasury, U.S. Agency, and U.S. Agency mortgage-backed securities are included in the U.S. Treasury/Agency category.

Sector allocation

All characteristics as a percentage of the fund's total net assets. Holdings and ratings are subject to change. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.

Important information on risk

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. Because the Index selects securities for inclusion based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, the Fund may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that don't use these criteria. Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of the Fund's portfolio will decline because of rising interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer of a debt security may be unable or unwilling to make interest and principal payments when due and the related risk that the value of a debt security may decline because of concerns about the issuer's ability or willingness to make such payments. This ETF is concentrated in the financial sector. Performance of companies in the financial sector may be adversely impacted by many factors, including, among others, government regulations, economic conditions, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund's prospectus.
Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well.

Bloomberg MSCI 1-5 Year Aggregate ESG Select Index is a custom index that is owned and calculated by MSCI, based on a modified version of the Bloomberg 1-5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond Index, and aims to increase exposure to positive environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and exhibit lower carbon exposure as compared to the Bloomberg 1-5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond Index.

It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) may not be marketed or advertised as an open-end investment company or mutual fund.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. ©2024 Morningstar, Inc.
