Guggenheim launches actively managed Total Return Bond ETF


Guggenheim Investments has launched theGuggenheim Total Return Bond exchange traded fund (GTO) which uses a multi-sector strategy and invests primarily in investment-grade fixed income securities across multiple sectors.

GTO joins Guggenheim Enhanced Short Duration ETF (GSY) as investment vehicles that provide the benefits of an ETF structure with the dynamics of an actively managed fixed-income strategy.
Driven by a macro view that utilises quantitative and qualitative processes to understand and manage risk, Guggenheim's award-winning fixed-income expertise seeks to identify and exploit market opportunities.
Guggenheim leverages more than 150 fixed-income professionals in addition to an internal legal team to thoroughly analyse and research each investment.
"With the traditional view of core fixed-income management quickly becoming antiquated in a persistent low-yield environment, investors and advisors must begin looking toward alternative solutions," says Scott Minerd, Chairman of Investments and Global CIO for Guggenheim Investments.
"Nearly two-thirds of the Barclays Capital US Aggregate Bond Index is composed of low-yielding government or government-related securities. Our investment team's rigorous and specialised credit analysis work to uncover attractive duration and yield in otherwise underappreciated asset classes, such as commercial asset-backed securities (ABS) and collateral loan obligations (CLOs) seeking to deliver strong performance independent of the Barclays Agg."
Guggenheim's actively managed approach provides the portfolio investment team the latitude to express its market views, while still adhering to the ETF's stated objectives – offering investors enhanced yield opportunities within a risk-managed approach.
