Nasdaq BulletShares® USD Corporate Bond 2028 Index

The Index provides exposure to a diversified basket of US dollar-denominated, investment grade bonds, all with a maturity — or, in some cases, effective maturity — of 2028. The Index combines the precise maturity exposure of an individual bond with the diversification benefits of a broad basket of securities, and is expected to have a return profile similar to a held-to-maturity bond.
