Madison Investments Unveils MSTI, Latest Addition to Actively-Managed ETF Suite

Fourth Fund in the Suite Reinforces Commitment to Dynamic Fixed-Income Solutions

MADISON, Wis., Sept. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Madison Investments, an independently-owned investment firm managing $22.9 billion in assets, today announces the launch of the Madison Short Term Strategic Income ETF (NYSE: MSTI), the fourth addition to its suite of actively-managed, income-driven exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

This expansion follows the launch of the suite’s first fixed income fund, the Madison Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSE: MAGG), which launched last week. Each ETF in the suite utilizes a dedicated investment process designed to help investors pursue income and capital appreciation through institutional-caliber, risk-controlled investment strategies.

The Madison Short Term Strategic Income ETF is designed to generate a high level of current income by allocating to a diverse set of fixed income sectors and individual securities within a typical duration range of 3-5 years. Its list of high-quality securities is built by actively managing portfolio duration, yield curve positioning, sector/industry allocation and credit quality. It has an expense ratio of 0.40%. Mike Sanders, Head of Fixed Income, manages the Madison Short Term Strategic Income ETF alongside Allen Olson and Chris Schroeder. The team has a combined 70 years of experience.

Sanders notes, “Through our active management approach, our fixed income ETFs are designed to help investors capitalize on the opportunities presented by this current rising rate environment. We created MSTI and its companion fund, MAGG, to address the growing need for fixed income strategies that generate yield from the bond market with a proactive approach to risk.”

MAGG and MSTI - An investment in these funds is subject to risk and there can be no assurance that the fund will achieve its investment objective. The risks associated with an investment in these funds can increase during times of significant market volatility. The principal risks of investing in these funds include: interest rate risk, call risk, risk of default, liquidity risk, mortgage-backed security risk, credit risk and repayment/extension risk, non-investment grade security risk and foreign security and emerging market risk. As interest rates rise, the prices of bonds fall. Long-term bonds are more exposed to interest-rate risk than short-term bonds. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. More detailed information regarding these risks can be found in the individual fund’s prospectus.

Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a bond or other debt instrument to a change in interest rates. Duration measures how long it takes, in years, for an investor to be repaid the bond’s price by the bond’s total cash flows.
