There is another new face on this week’s list, courtesy of the fixed income space. The WisdomTree BofA Merrill Lynch High Yield Bond Zero Duration Fund (NasdaqGM: HYZD), which launched in December 2013, was in focus as investors look for ways to capture yield while guarding against higher interest rates.

Speaking of income opportunities, dividend ETFs remain popular as the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEArca: VIG), PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Portfolio (NYSEArca: SPHD) and the iShares Select Dividend ETF (NYSEArca: DVY) all make appearances among the 15 most searched ETFs.

The Global X FTSE Portugal 20 ETF (NYSEArca: PGAL) was this week’s most searched global ETF, which is not surprising given its 6.6% tumble on the week.
