The ETF typically has 90% to 95% of its holdings in investment grade bonds, with the remaining assets seeking upside by using a long only options overlay. The fund is designed to be used as a core bond complement. It seeks to outperform the Bloomberg US Aggregate Bond Index over a full market cycle without taking on excess risk.

DEFINITIONS OF TERMS:
Investment Grade Fixed Income – To be considered an investment grade issue, the company must be rated at ‘BBB’ or higher by Standard and Poor’s or Moody’s. Anything below this ‘BBB’ rating is considered non-investment grade.
30-Day SEC Yield – Yield calculation that reflects the dividends and interest earned during the period after the deduction of the fund’s expenses. It is also referred to as the “standardized yield.”
Call Option – A call is an option contract giving the owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy a specified amount of an underlying security at a specified price within a specified time.
Put Option – Put options give holders of the option the right, but not the obligation, to sell a specified amount of an underlying security at a specified price within a specified time frame.
Weighted Average Maturity – Weighted average maturity is a measure of the overall maturity of the debt securities in a portfolio.
Duration – Duration is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a bond or other debt instrument to a change in interest rates. Duration can measure how long it takes, in years, for an investor to be repaid the bond’s price by the bond’s total cash flows. Duration can also measure the sensitivity of a bond’s or fixed income portfolio’s price to changes in interest rates. In general, the higher the duration, the more a bond’s price will drop as interest rates rise (and the greater the interest rate risk). For example, if rates were to rise 1%, a bond or bond fund with a five-year average duration would likely lose approximately 5% of its value.
Option-Adjusted Duration – A measure of fixed income duration that accounts for the effect of a call option on the expected life of a bond.

BFIX News & Insights
In the past three years, financial markets have faced unprecedented challenges ranging from the worst pandemic in 100 years, the biggest armed conflict in Europe since World War II, the largest drawdown in bonds ever, and highest inflation in more than 40 years. The resultant market volatility has left many financial advisors unsure of what to do next, but savvy advisors know there are throughlines in the narrative. These are the four key macro trends we believe every advisor needs to be watching to drive their clients’ success.
We first touched upon the importance of tax loss harvesting in a blog post back in April. A critical point to remember from that post is that a tax management strategy, which should include tax loss harvesting, is a vital tool in every investor’s tool kit....
Investors opening their quarterly statements from Q1 2022 may be finding something they probably haven’t seen much of recently: lots of red. With few exceptions, most asset classes were negative in Q1 2022, but bonds had a particularly painful quarter. Against a...
