A Fixed-Income ETF Idea for Yield-Starved Investors

Jan van Eck, CEO of Van Eck Global, joined ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon to go over some alternative fixed-income exchange traded fund strategies as we look to higher interest rates ahead.

For instance, van Eck pointed to safer municipal bonds and even high-yield munis as a way for investors to continue to generate attractive yields. Investors can also tap into this market through a targeted and diversified ETF, like the Market Vectors High Yield Municipal Index ETF (NYSEArca: HYD), which has a 4.28% 30-day SEC yield.
