There are many ETFs which invest in high yield bonds. High-yield ETFs focus on lower-quality bonds, which are more risky than those of higher-quality companies. These types of ETFs provide better returns than ETFs investing in the government and corporate bonds. In addition, high yield bonds are less vulnerable to the interest rate shifts. The high-yield ETFs are designed for investors who are willing to take more risk. For instance, a bond’s price may decrease if interest rates rise or in case of recessions. Nevertheless, investing in high yield bonds may provide high levels of income and the ability to reduce the overall portfolio volatility.
