About the SUBD ETF
VanEck Vectors Australian Subordinated Debt ETF SUBD invests in a portfolio of subordinated bonds with the aim of providing investment returns before fees and other costs that track the performance of the index. The ETF is managed VanEck, pays monthly dividends and first traded in October 2019.
Subordinated bonds pay coupons (interest) that vary with short-term interest rates and interest rates are reset periodically resulting in reduced duration (interest rate risk). The higher risk associated with subordinated bonds means they pay a higher yield.
