Corporate Bond Funds

Corporate bond portfolios concentrate on investment-grade bonds issued by corporations in U.S. dollars, which tend to have more credit risk than government or agency-backed bonds. These portfolios hold more than 65% of their assets in corporate debt, less than 40% of their assets in non-U.S. debt, less than 35% in below-investment-grade debt, and durations that typically range between 75% and 150% of the three-year average of the effective duration of the Morningstar Core Bond Index.

Corporate Bond Funds - Default List Criteria

This list is limited to US mutual funds that are primarily used by individual or retail investors.

SEC Yield is based on a 30-day period ending on the last day of the previous month. It is computed by dividing the net investment incomes per share earned during the period by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period. The figure listed lags by one month. When a dash appears, the yield available is more than 30 days old.
