Nuveen Launches Enhanced Yield 1–5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF

ETF to Begin Trading Today on the NYSE Arca

CHICAGO--()--Nuveen announced that the NuShares Enhanced Yield 1–5 Year U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF will begin trading today on the NYSE Arca under the symbol NUSA. The ETF seeks to offer enhanced yield relative to the 1–5 year U.S. investment grade fixed income market with comparable risk and credit quality.

Positioned as a distinct alternative to short-term bond index funds weighted by issuance size, the ETF seeks to track the investment results, before fees and expenses, of the BofA Merrill Lynch Enhanced Yield 1–5 Year US Broad Bond Index, which uses a rules-based methodology to allocate higher weights to categories with higher yields without significantly increasing risk or decreasing credit quality.

Risk Considerations

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of the Fund’s portfolio will decline because of rising interest rates. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer of a debt security may be unable or unwilling to make interest and principal payments when due and the related risk that the value of a debt security may decline because of concerns about the issuer’s ability or willingness to make such payments. This ETF is concentrated in the financial sector. Performance of companies in the financial sector may be adversely impacted by many factors, including, among others, government regulations, economic conditions, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price as opposed to net asset value. As a result, an investor may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. In addition, brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Fund shares are not individually redeemable directly with the fund, but blocks of shares may be acquired from the fund and tendered for redemption to the fund by certain institutional investors in Creation Units.
