How To Analyze ETFs With Bloomberg: Introduction

Bloomberg can be used to analyze almost any asset class, including exchange traded funds (ETFs) This article will outline some of the ways in which Bloomberg can be used to specifically analyze the ETF market.

The best starting point for evaluating ETFs on Bloomberg is accessed by typing <FUND> into the terminal. This screen brings up a menu with a variety of fund functions, including screening tools, ETF-specific news menus and tools for analyzing the asset class. The functions found on the <FUND> page (as well as the other functions discussed in this article) should provide a good starting point for your ETF analysis, but as you navigate Bloomberg, you'll undoubtedly discover additional useful functions. Whenever you have specific questions, you can contact the Bloomberg helpdesk or access Bloomberg University by typing <BU> into the terminal.
