Exchange-Traded Funds



The Fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the BofA Merrill Lynch Enhanced Yield 1-5 Year US Broad Bond Index.

ETF Description

The Funds offers the potential for enhanced yield relative to the short-term, taxable investment grade fixed income market with comparable risk. The Fund invests primarily in U.S. government securities, debt securities issued by U.S. corporations, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, asset-based securities that are publicly offered for sale in the U.S., with a remaining term to final maturity, or an average life, of less than five years.

Index Description

The BofA Merrill Lynch Enhanced Yield 1-5 Year US Broad Bond Index (the “Enhanced Index”) is designed to broadly capture the 1-5 year U.S investment grade fixed income market. Rather than weighting by capitalization, the Enhanced Index uses a rules-based methodology that allocates higher weights to securities and sectors that have the potential for higher yield while maintaining comparable risk.


Consider the Fund if you’re seeking:
  • Enhanced yield potential relative to the short-term, taxable U.S. investment grade fixed income market with comparable risk
  • An alternative to market-cap weighted strategies
  • A diversified core fixed income portfolio allocation
  • Intraday exchange-traded liquidity
  • A transparent, low-cost investment solution

Risk Considerations

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of the Fund’s portfolio will decline because of rising interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer of a debt security may be unable or unwilling to make interest and principal payments when due and the related risk that the value of a debt security may decline because of concerns about the issuer’s ability or willingness to make such payments. This ETF is concentrated in the financial sector. Performance of companies in the financial sector may be adversely impacted by many factors, including, among others, government regulations, economic conditions, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.
