Overview

Investment Strategy:

KBND is benchmarked to the Bloomberg China Inclusion Focused Bond Index, which is designed to track the performance of China’s onshore renminbi-denominated bond market. The Fund seeks to invest at least 80% of its assets in a basket of fixed income securities.

KBND Overview:

  • Invests in treasuries (i.e.government bonds) and high-quality corporate bonds and attempts to provide attractive yields relative to other government and investment grade bond markets with a monthly distribution.
  • KBND offers access to the securities included in Bloomberg broad fixed income indexes and investment opportunities within the second largest bond market in the world.
  • For investors seeking diversification1 within their global bond portfolios, KBND offers low correlations to other major bond markets.

Bloomberg China Bond Inclusion Overview:

  • The inclusion of onshore, Renminbi-denominated Chinese bonds in Bloomberg indexes began in April 2019 and was concluded at the end of 2020.
  • The market estimates nearly $150 billion of fund inflows into China’s $13 trillion onshore bond market2.
  • China’s government bonds are a focus of the inclusion and China has already replaced South Korea as the top issuer by weight within the Bloomberg Emerging Market Local Currency Government Bond Index.
