How to Purchase

BIZD
VanEck Vectors BDC Income ETF

  • Business development companies (BDCs) have sold off due to credit concerns along with other private credit vehicles, yet the sell-off is nowhere near the 80% sell-off through the 2008 crisis and yields are easily at the highest level since BIZD launched in 2013.
  • Valuations appear attractive with price-to-book (P/B) near 0.6x. P/B at the end of March was down from over 1.0x to start the year (Source: FactSet).
  • BDCs may have the ability to leverage the recently passed CARES Act to help support their portfolio companies.
  • BDCs that were already positioned for the end of the credit cycle may fare better with lower leverage, greater diversification, senior loan exposure and recession-resistant portfolio companies.
  • BIZD offers a beta approach to provide diversification across the industry and alleviate the need for individual BDC credit research.

Fund Description

The VanEck Vectors® BDC Income ETF (BIZD®) seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the MVIS® US Business Development Companies Index (MVBIZDTG), which tracks the overall performance of publicly traded business development companies.
