What is SDEF?

Under normal market conditions, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in fixed income securities. The Fund s investments in fixed income securities will typically include U.S. corporate bonds, preferred stock and ETFs that invest in bonds, sovereign debt, and private placement debt securities. The Fund may also invest in fixed income securities issued by U.S. and foreign corporations, securities issued by governments and their agencies, instrumentalities, or sponsored corporations, including supranational organizations. The Fund s investments in fixed income securities will also include shares of business development companies ( BDCs ) and real estate investment trusts ( REITs ). Investments in BDCs and REITs are intended to provide the enhanced component of the Fund s strategy because these securities typically pay a higher yield than traditional investment-grade bonds and preferred stocks. The Fund may also invest in fixed income securities that are illiquid, thinly traded or subject to special resale restrictions, such as those imposed by Rule 144A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act ).

What is ETF correlation?

Correlation is a measure of the strength of the relationship between two ETFs. It quantifies the degree to which prices of the two ETFs typically move together.

Here, correlation is measured over the past year with the Pearson correlation coefficient (Pearon’s r), which ranges from -1 to 1.

Using ETF correlations in portfolio and strategy construction

  • Build a diversified portfolio from uncorrelated or inversely correlated ETFs with the aim of minimizing portfolio risk.
  • Compare correlated or related ETFs to find one with a lower expense ratio or higher trading volume.
  • Create an investing strategy that hedges an ETF with an uncorrelated or inversely correlated ETF.
