Corporate Bond ETFs

Most of these ETFs invest in debt issued by corporations with investment-grade credit ratings. Bonds included in these funds can feature varying maturities and are issued by companies from multiple industries. These particular bonds tend to have more credit risk than government or agency-backed bonds. Corporate bonds can provide regular interest payments, which may be fixed or variable, in line with movements in a benchmark interest rate. Corporate bond funds are an excellent income investing strategy for conservative investors looking to generate steady income and preserve the principal balance over the investor's estimated lifespan. Corporate bonds are suited best for conservative investors with either a short term goal (less than 3 years), or those who are in retirement seeking a regular income stream.
