This active ETF looks to achieve maximum current income while preserving capital and maintaining daily liquidity. As a result, the fund should be considered an ultra-safe place to park assets in times of great turmoil. Just don't expect the fund to pay out a very high yield as the product only seeks to beat the 1-3 month Treasury Bill Index and maintains securities that have a duration of less than one year. The fund invests in both U.S. treasuries, corporate debt and even up to ten percent in high yield bonds. This added bond holding could help the fund boost yield and since it is such short term the product could see very little in terms of defaults. GSY is a quality product for parking cash but probably shouldn't make up very high portions of a portfolio.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for GSY on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Money Market with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
