ANGL
VanEck Vectors Fallen Angel High Yield Bond ETF

Latest Market Updates*

  • With over $140B of new fallen angel high yield bonds through July, 2020 is already a record year, and we expect an additional $100 to $150 billion of additional volume for the remainder of the year. Source: VanEck, as of 7/31/2020.
  • With this oncoming wave of downgrades, we expect to see a similar technical pattern of forced selling as we have historically.
  • We believe new bonds entering the index may come in at deeper than average discounts.
