What is ITM?
The VanEck Intermediate Muni ETF (ITM) seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the ICE Intermediate AMT-Free Broad National Municipal Index (MBNI), which is intended to track the overall performance of the U.S. dollar-denominated intermediate-term tax-exempt bond market.

Qualifying securities must be exempt from Federal taxes and must not be subject to the alternative minimum tax. In addition, qualifying securities must have at least six years but less than 17 years remaining term to final maturity, a fixed coupon schedule (including zero coupons and step-up or step-down bonds), and an investment grade rating (based on the middle rating of Moody's, S&P and Fitch).
