  • GHY is a high yield bond fund with a tilt towards global positioning, roughly 55% of the portfolio is outside the U.S.
  • Russia and Ukraine's exposure combined, as of January 31st, 2022, had been rather minimal.
  • The fund has been declining, but its share price has been outpacing the NAV price creating a deep discount.
