LHVLTRUU Bloomberg Barclays High Yield Very Liquid Index

The Index is designed to measure the performance of publicly issued U.S. dollar denominated high yield corporate bonds with above-average liquidity. High yield securities are generally rated below investment grade and are commonly referred to as “junk bonds.” The Index includes publicly issued U.S. dollar denominated, non-investment grade, fixed-rate, taxable corporate bonds that have a remaining maturity of at least one year, but not more than fifteen years, regardless of optionality; are rated high-yield (Ba1/ BB+/BB+ or below); and have $500 million or more of outstanding face value. To be eligible for inclusion in the Index, a bond must have been issued within the past five years.
