GYLD Factset Analytics Insight
GYLD reaches across asset class boundaries in its search for yield and has attracted a decent asset base since its 2012 launch. The fund allocates equally across five main categories of global securities: equities, sovereign debt, corporate debt, real estate and alternatives. (Real estate and alternatives here mean primarily REITs and MLPs.) The fund takes on risk as it searches for income--risk that's hard to measure but that's palpable in its holdings list. Currency risk (and reward) is in play here too as often more than 1/2 of the exposure is outside the US, according to the issuer. Still, the fund's structural diversity tamps down its risk. The fund has amassed significant assets since launch, and the expense ratio is not unusually high for the multi-asset income space. While trading volume is decent, trading spreads have been wide and variable at times. Larger players may face challenges trading the fund too as the diverse underlying basket is hard for APs to hedge.
