A Case for Fallen Angels Bonds; now accessible through our Fallen Angels ETF

Currently, there is a particular opportunity to invest, as the number of fallen angels grew significantly during the pandemic. As at any time of economic distress, a number of well-known companies’ bonds were downgraded. The global economy has been slowly picking up its pace since the heyday of the pandemic, however the number of Fallen Angels still has not returned to the pre-pandemic levels.

Because all or a portion of the Fund are being invested in securities denominated in foreign currencies, the Fund’s exposure to foreign currencies and changes in the value of foreign currencies versus the base currency may result in reduced returns for the Fund, and the value of certain foreign currencies may be subject to a high degree of fluctuation.
