As ETF investors carefully look over the current market environment, many are considering equity and fixed-income strategies that could help diversify and enhance an investment portfolio in a more trying environment. On the recent webcast, Macro Strategies: Navigating Choppy Market Waters, Kevin Flanagan, Senior Fixed Income Strategist for WisdomTree, argued that supportive elements that previously bolstered the economy and U.S. markets are beginning to fade so investors should hold back expectations.

WFHY and its short-term counterpart, the WisdomTree Fundamental U.S. Short-Term High Yield Corporate Bond Fund (SFHY) , WFHY and SFHY seek to provide investors with the potential to capture the performance of selected issuers in the U.S. high yield corporate bond market—they each have a net expense ratio of 0.38%. While the number of domestic corporate defaults this year is relatively low, WFHY's fundamentally-weighted methodology could serve income investors well if defaults increase.
