BUND Description
The Fund seeks to provide total return that closely corresponds, before fees and expenses, to the total return of The BofA Merrill Lynch Diversified Germany Bond Index. The BofA Merrill Lynch Diversified Germany Bond Indexsm tracks the performance of large, Euro (“EUR”)- denominated investment grade debt instruments of German issuers publicly issued in the eurobond or Euro member domestic markets, including sovereign, quasi-government, corporate, securitized and collateralized securities. All Qualifying securities must be an obligation of a German entity with at least one year remaining term to final maturity and a fixed coupon schedule. Qualifying German sovereign securities must have a minimum amount outstanding of EUR 1 billion. Qualifying non-sovereign securities must have a minimum amount outstanding of EUR 500million and must be rated investment grade. Index constituents are capitalization-weighted adjusted, as necessary, to meet issuer concentration limits. The Underlying Index is rebalanced on the last calendar day of the month. It is not possible to invest directly in an unmanaged index.
