Not every new fund can be as attractive as Pimco’s Total Return ETF (NYSEArca: BOND), but you may want to pay closer attention to certain launches, as some of these underappreciated funds cover attractive spaces and have prospective strategies for investors seeking returns in volatile markets, according to an article on Seeking Alpha.
The following relatively new funds were outlined in the article:
- PowerShares Fundamental Investment Grade Corporate Bond Portfolio (NYSEArca: PFIG)
- PowerShares S&P International Developed Low Volatility Portfolio (NYSEArca: IDLV)
- SPDR BofA Merrill Lynch Crossover Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: XOVR)
- iShares MSCI India Index (NYSEArca: INDA)
- QuantShares U.S. Market Neutral Value ETF (NYSEArca: CHEP)
The article also contained a cautionary note about the ETFs, saying that the funds on the list are rather small and illiquid. That means investors should keep an eye on bid/ask spreads, the Seeking Alpha story said.
