Guggenheim Investments Managing Director William Belden joined ETF Trends Publisher Tom Lydon at the Morningstar ETF Conference to discuss the impact rising interest rates can have on investors’ fixed income portfolios and the advantages Guggenheim’s suite of BulletShares defined maturity ETFs can offer if rates do in fact rise.
“One of the biggest risks investors take when they’re holding fixed income allocations in their portfolio is that when rates go up, they the value of their bond allocations go down,” said Belden.
Nearly five years ago, Guggenheim pioneered the defined maturity BulletShares lineup, which gives investors the advantages of precise maturity with their fixed income allocations.
Guggenheim currently issues 11 BulletShares corporate bond ETFs with maturities ranging from 2014 through 2024. The firm also sponsors nine high-yield BulletShares ETFs with maturities spanning from 2014 to 2022.
