NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacific Global ETFs, one of Pacific Life’s family of funds, announced today the addition of two income-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to its growing suite of actively managed, income-focused investment strategies.
The new funds, Pacific Global International Equity Income ETF (NYSE Arca: IDY) and Pacific Global Focused High Yield ETF (NYSE Arca: FJNK), are designed to complement Pacific Global ETFs’ flagship fund, Pacific Global US Equity Income ETF (NYSE: USDY).
“We’re excited about the launch of our income-focused ETFs that build on the more than 150-year legacy of Pacific Life,” said Anthony J. Dufault, managing director of Pacific Global ETFs. “We constructed our ETFs with a focus on addressing investors’ needs for income-producing strategies, which is especially important with today’s low interest rates.”
Pacific Global International Equity Income ETF seeks to provide income and long-term capital growth from equities primarily in developed countries. The factor-based investment approach for IDY uses a systematic factor methodology to target international large-cap stocks that are expected to deliver attractive dividend yields, capital appreciation and diversification. IDY’s sub-adviser is Cadence Capital Management.
Pacific Global Focused High Yield ETF seeks to provide income and long-term capital growth by investing in a focused portfolio of liquid, high-yield debt securities. Using a structured, actively managed approach, FJNK is designed to outperform its benchmark, while providing liquidity requested by investors. FJNK’s sub-adviser is Pacific Asset Management.

Risks and Other Important Information
ETF shares are not individually redeemable from the Funds. Shares may only be redeemed directly from the Funds by Authorized Participants in creation units only.
The Funds are actively managed ETFs and, thus, do not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. Instead, investment decisions are made based on investment views and there is no guarantee that the investment views will produce the desired results or expected returns, which may cause the Fund to fail to meet its investment objective or to underperform its benchmark index or funds with similar investment objectives and strategies.
The Funds face numerous market trading risks, including disruptions to the creation and redemption process, losses from trading in secondary markets, the existence of extreme market volatility or potential lack of an active trading market for Shares, which may result in Shares trading at a significant premium or discount to net asset value (NAV). The market prices of Shares will fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV and supply and demand on the Exchange. If a shareholder purchases Shares at a time when the market price is at a premium to the NAV or sells Shares at a time when the market price is at a discount to the NAV, the shareholder may sustain losses.
Changes in foreign economies and political climates are more likely to affect a Fund than a mutual fund that invests exclusively in U.S. companies. If the Fund invests in securities that trade in, and receive revenues in, foreign currencies, it will be subject to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar. While a Fund may hold securities of companies that have historically paid a high dividend yield, those companies may reduce or discontinue their dividends, reducing the yield of the Fund. A Fund’s investments in high yield securities or “junk bonds” are subject to a greater risk of loss of income and principal than higher grade debt securities. Fixed income securities are subject to the risk that securities could lose value because of interest rate changes. A Fund could lose money if the issuer or guarantor of a debt instrument in which the Fund invests becomes unwilling or unable to make timely principal and/or interest payments or to otherwise meet its obligations.
This does not constitute a recommendation of any investment strategy or product for a particular investor. Investors should consult a financial advisor/financial consultant before making any investment decisions.
Before investing, Investors should carefully read the prospectus/summary prospectus and carefully consider the Investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
