Nasdaq BulletShares® USD High Yield Corporate Bond 2029 Index

The Index provides exposure to a diversified basket of US dollar-denominated, high yield corporate bonds, all with a maturity — or, in some cases, effective maturity — of 2029.  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.
