BetaShares HBRD ETF (ASX:HBRD)
The BetaShares HBRD Fund provides investors with exposure to hybrids. Think of hybrids this way: companies can raise capital by either issuing debt or equity. Debt and equity each have different characteristics, advantages and disadvantages. Hybrid securities have some characteristics of both.
What does the HBRD invest in?
HBRD primarily invests in preference shares, with minor weightings to capital notes, bonds and cash. If and when the hybrids market is deemed to be overvalued or present a heightened risk of capital loss, the Fund can allocate more of the portfolio to lower risk securities.
What do investors use HBRD for?
The BetaShares HBRD Fund could be used by investors to access income returns from an actively managed portfolio of hybrid securities. The Fund actively seeks to reduce the volatility and downside risk associated with owning hybrids directly.
