Junk Bond ETFs are composed of non-investment grade bonds. These bonds carry a rating of BBB or lower and have a high risk of default, but offer yields that are typically well above average.

Click on the tabs below to see more information on Junk ETFs, including historical performance, dividends, holdings, expense ratios, technical indicators, analysts reports and more. Click on an ETF ticker or name to go to its detail page, for in-depth news, financial data and graphs. By default the list is ordered by descending total market capitalization. Note that ETFs are usually tagged by ETFdb analysts as more than one type; for example, an inverse gold ETF may be tagged as “inverse” and as “gold” and as “commodity”.

Note that the table below may include leveraged and inverse ETFs. Exclude Leveraged and Inverse ETFs
