List of Municipal Bond ETFs

municipal bond etfs

Municipal Bond ETFs consist of “muni” bonds, also known as local government bonds. Local governments issue debt in order to raise capital for towns, cities, and counties to help with areas such as urban development, education, etc. In the case of municipal bond ETFs, they track indexes that consist of local government bond products.

So, if you’re looking for a municipal bond ETF, you’ve come to the right place. This list is not only updated to have the most current bond ETFs but also will contain individual “clickable” spotlights on each muni bond ETF as I create them.

So if you’re looking to research some municipal bond ETFs for your investing strategy, look no further.

So that should have you covered for any investing strategy you want to utilize with municipal bond exchange traded funds and notes. And check back often as I will update this list with new filings, launches and remove and funds that are delisted, although hopefully, that is not the case.

And as with any investment, a company stock, an ETF, Index or otherwise, please make sure you thoroughly research this exchange-traded fund or any financial asset before making any trades (long or short). Conduct your due diligence, watch how these funds react to different market conditions, take a look under the hood and see what is in the funds. And if you have any questions or concerns, make sure you consult a stockbroker, a financial advisor, or another financial industry professional.

While ETFs have many advantages, they have many disadvantages as well (as does any investment). So it is very important to understand the investment vehicle before you trade it. But once you have a full understanding on these ETFs, you can consider adding either or both to your portfolio. And good luck with all of your trades!
