YLD Factset Analytics Insight
In a space dominated by index-based strategies, YLD is a truely active ETF. The fund's portfolio manager has broad leeway to invest across asset classes and geographic boundaries in search of income. YLD's prospectus and marketing material give few hints as to the strategic and tactical approach the manager uses. The portfolio may hold global equities of all sizes and styles, including REITs and MLPs. The fixed income component may include corporate and sovereign debt, investment-grade and high-yield debt, convertibles, preferred stock, mortgage securities, and floating-rate instruments. The manager faces no exposure limits of any kind, other than those mandated by RIC compliance. YLD is competitively priced, though like most active funds it isn't cheap. Liquidity can be hit and miss, so trade carefully to avoid driving up all-in costs.
