ANGL
VanEck Vectors Fallen Angel High Yield Bond ETF

Market Updates*

  • ANGL’s index has consistently outperformed the broad high yield index in a variety of market conditions, with outperformance in 13 of the past 17 years.
  • Long-term performance has been driven by buying new fallen angels at deep discounts, a higher quality tilt, and sector positioning.
  • 2020 performance has been driven by record volume of new fallen angels; we expect further downgrade in 2021, however as the pace slows we expect the other drivers of performance to play an important role in returns going forward.

Fund Description

The VanEck Vectors® Fallen Angel High Yield Bond ETF (ANGL®) seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the ICE US Fallen Angel High Yield 10% Constrained Index (H0CF), which is comprised of below investment grade corporate bonds denominated in U.S. dollars, issued in the U.S. domestic market and that were rated investment grade at the time of issuance.
