Exposure to variety of short term corporate debt securities.
This 1-5 year corporate bond ETF provides income to the portfolio. Corporate bonds typically have higher yields than government bonds. XSH invests in high quality investment grade corporate bonds in Canada. It also invests in maple bonds (U.S. company bonds issued in Canadian dollars) for added diversification. The investment strategy is to have maturities from 1 to 5 years, which helps reduce the risk of rising interest rates, as the proceeds from the near term maturities can be invested at higher rates.
