The TD Select US Short Term Corporate Bond Ladder ETF seeks to earn a high rate of interest while preserving capital through exposure to the performance of a diversified portfolio of primarily investment-grade U.S. corporate bonds. The ETF may also look for added value from non-investment grade debt instruments to help enhance total return. The annual management fee is 0.25 per cent of NAV.

“These new ETFs provide investors with additional choice and flexibility to help manage risk, reduce portfolio volatility and potentially outperform the market,” says Cooper. “As Canada’s largest asset manager, we have extensive experience in managing ETFs for institutional clients and following the introduction of our passive ETFs in 2016 for retail clients, this is a natural extension of our offering.”
