First iShares ETF on high-yield bonds tradable on Xetra


iShares has launched an exchange-traded bond index fund in Deutsche Börse’s XTF segment.

The iShares Markit iBoxx Euro High Yield gives investors the opportunity, for the first time, to invest in high-yield corporate bonds denominated in euros with issuers in or outside the euro zone.

The bonds have a sub-investment grade rating. These bonds have a higher risk of default, but therefore pay higher yields.

Only the largest and most liquid bonds with an amount outstanding of at least EUR250m are included.

The weighting per issuer is limited to five per cent in the reference index.
