High-Yield Sovereign Debt

Cambria Investment Management launched the actively managed Cambria Sovereign High Yield Bond ETF (NYSEArc: SOVB), according to a press release. SOVB consists of liquid sovereign debt issues with high yield characteristics. Additionally, the underlying index tries to eschew traditional cap-weighted indexing methodologies, which may overweight the most indebted countries, by limiting country debt to 10% of the portfolio. The ETF is mostly made up of emerging market high-yield, speculative-grade debt. SOVB has a 0.59% expense ratio.
