Generating yields from fixed income ETFs
While exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have erupted in popularity among Australian investors, the enthusiasm has been largely weighted towards equity and gold-based funds. Savvy investors understand that a resilient portfolio is a balanced one, but what may not be well-known is the existence of bond ETFs and how they work.
In this regard, there are over two dozen choices on the ASX, offering investors a treasure trove of options for diversification, stability and yields across the domestic, global and corporate bond markets.
Here, Blair Hannon, ETF Specialist at BlackRock, educates investors about the important components of a bond ETF: pricing, liquidity and distributions. He then goes on to discuss two new ETFs BlackRock has introduced on the ASX as part of the “next phase” of fixed income funds designed to regard investors’ yield, duration and ESG considerations in the current environment.
