HYG Fund Description

The iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF tracks a market-weighted index of US high-yield corporate debt.

HYG Factset Analytics Insight

HYG was the first mover in the high-yield corporate bond market. For many years its been one of the largest and most liquid junk bond ETFs, along with archrival JNK. Its core exposure through the iBoxx index it tracks is solid, covering the most liquid corner of the junk bond market. HYG replicates much of the overall junk bond market, but often with shorter maturity, less interest-rate sensitivity, and also less yield.

HYG charges a higher fee than many peers, but mitigates that somewhat by tracking its index more closely than most. However, direct comparisons are difficult, as HYGs underlying index factors in transaction costs, while others, following industry convention, do not. In sum, HYG is an anchor tenant in the ETF bond market, and earns our Analyst Pick designation.
