The corporate bonds ETFs are available for both: high grade corporate bonds and high-yield corporate bonds. The Corporate Bonds ETFs seem to be the best choice for investors with smaller portfolios who may not have the ability to invest in the individual bonds. Such ETFs provide an exposure to the specific section of the corporate bond market by tracking indexes with a fixed duration. Corporate bonds are issued by corporations and sold to investors, they are usually related to the longer-term debt instruments – one year and longer. It is worth noticing that changes in the interest rates influence the bond prices. According to this, if the interest rates rise, the price of a corporate bond ETFs falls. The corporate bonds often pay higher rates than government bonds or municipal bonds and they are also more volatile than treasuries and other government-issued bonds. As a result, ETFs which invest in the corporate bonds are characterized by a higher level of risk but they also provide higher returns. Investing in such ETFs is more suitable for experienced investors. It is said that investing in corporate bonds is much safer than investing in the common stocks.
