  • Key Points

    • Designed to hedge the risk of rising interest rates while offering income potential from high-yield bonds 

    • Offers near-zero duration by tracking an index that combines high-yield bonds with short positions in 5-Year U.S. Treasury notes 

    • Presents relatively greater risk of loss than unhedged high-yield bond funds in "risk-off" environment: when U.S. Treasuries rally and high-yield bonds decline
