iShares Adds More Junk (Bond) ETFs


For those raising their hands high and asking for more high yield bond ETFs, iShares is serving up two more corporate bond ETFs that “will cover a spectrum of credit quality ranging from low-investment-grade to junk bonds.” Both of the new funds will own corporates issued in US dollars, euros, British pounds and Canadian dollars.

iShares announcement is on the heels of Van Eck registering a bucket full of corporate bond ETFs earlier this week.

Kudos to Cinthia Murphy at IndexUniverse for keeping her fingers on the pulse of the new registration market!
