BKLN delves into the high yield bond space by investing in leveraged loans to offer juicy yields to those willing to forgo the risks and invest in this product. The high yield bond space has been cracked wide open by ETFs, as these products have offered numerous ways for investors to take advantage of this space. High yields can be a great addition to a yield-starved portfolio, as they can offer yields into the double digits for those willing to take on the risks that come along with it. The high returns come from riskier bond choices who have to pay out higher ratios to compensate investors for high risks. this means that the holdings of these ETFs will have higher chances of defaults, and could potentially leave investors out to dry. But for those who have done their homework on the holdings of a particular "junk" bond fund have the ability to generate strong returns from these powerful products. BKLN invests entirely in U.S. leveraged loans, giving investors a pure play on the domestic economy that other "junk" bond products do not offer. This product will make a strong addition to investors who understand the risks and want a diversified exposure to the high yielding space as it exists in the US.
