Analyst Report

This fund offers broad exposure to an index of companies classified as business development companies. These firms are legal entities that may maintain certain tax advantages. In order to qualify as a BDC, an entity must be must be registered in compliance with Section 54 of the Investment Company Act of 1940. Some publicly-traded private equity firms are registered as BDCs under the Investment Company Act of 1940. BDCs may enjoy many of the same tax benefits that REITs encounter if they meet certain criteria; they pay almost no corporate taxes as long as they pay out at least 90% of their profit and capital gains as taxable dividends. BDCs can also earn exemption from the 4% nondeductible federal excise tax if they distribute at least 98% of ordinary income for each calendar year. BDCs are not considered REITs under the Internal Revenue Code. As a result, this product could pay outsized yields to ivnestors over the long haul. However, investors should note that these products could see extreme levels of volatility over the short and long term suggesting that investors should be careful when investing in this product.
