New High-Yield Corporate Bond ETFs | ETF Trends

More providers are rolling out fixed-income ETFs designed to capitalize on investors’ desire for yield.

Guggenheim Investments this week introduced several new specialized ETFs that focus on the U.S. high-yield corporate debt market, or “junk” bonds.

“BulletShares provide a cost-effective approach to bond laddering,” William Belden, head of product development for Guggenheim Investments said. “Advisors are increasingly looking for ways to use high-yield corporate bonds to diversify their clients’ portfolios, and these ETFs are a unique solution.” [High-Yield Bond ETFs Come with Risk]
