The IYLD ETF attempts to provide a low-cost exposure to bonds with good income or yield characteristics, in a diversified portfolio that excludes Australia’s Big Four banks and by incorporating ESG factors.
IYLD provides investors with exposure to Australian investment grade bonds, excluding companies involved in controversial weapons, fossil fuels, civilian firearm companies, UN compact violatores and tobacco companies. It also excludes Australia’s Big Four banks (CBA, NAB, Westpac, ANZ) in an attempt to diversify income exposure away from the most concentrated sector in Australia (financials/banks).
Investors could use an ETF like IYLD as part of a defensive or income allocation in a diversified portfolio which also includes shares and investments in other asset classes. The IYLD ETF attemps to offer higher than normal ‘yields’ or income potential.
Dividend yield information is coming soon (how good is that!).
