Fund Description
The Fund seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of ICE BofA Merrill Lynch Enhanced Yield US Broad Bond Index. The Fund employs a passive management (or indexing ) approach, seeking to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the ICE BofA Merrill Lynch Enhanced Yield US Broad Bond Index (the Enhanced Index ). The Fund generally invests in a sample of the securities in the Enhanced Index whose risk, return and other characteristics resemble the risk, return and other characteristics of the Enhanced Index. Under normal market conditions, the Fund invests at least 80% of its assets, exclusive of collateral held from securities lending, in component securities of the Enhanced Index. The Enhanced Index is designed to broadly capture the U.S. investment grade fixed income market and uses a rules-based weighting methodology that seeks to enhance yield while maintaining comparable risk. The Enhanced Index is primarily comprised of U.S. government securities, debt securities issued by U.S. corporations, residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities and U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities issued by non-U.S. governments and corporations that are publicly offered for sale in the U.S.
