Frequently asked questions

BulletShares ETFs are a suite of defined-maturity exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that enable investors and financial professionals to build customized portfolios tailored to specific maturity profiles, risk preferences, and investment goals. BulletShares are designed to combine the precision of individual bonds that have specific maturity dates with the potential advantages of ETFs such as diversification and transparency. BulletShares ETFs typically pay monthly distributions.

A bond ladder is built with individual bonds of varying maturities. As the bonds mature, the anticipated proceeds can be used for income needs or reinvested in new bonds that mature in subsequent years. Investors may use bond ladders to help create some predictability and stability regardless of market volatility and interest rate environments. Since they have specific maturity dates, investors can use BulletShares ETFs to build bond ladders without the time and expense of using individual bonds.

BulletShares ETFs can provide investors with an efficient way to establish potential protection from rising rates because the duration of the fund slowly rolls down to zero over the life of the ETF. Most traditional fixed income mutual funds and ETFs typically have a perpetual duration target, making them more sensitive to rising interest rates.

BulletShares ETFs provide targeted exposure to investment-grade and high-yield corporate bonds.

BulletShares ETFs have defined maturities to simulate the investor experience of buying and holding individual bonds to maturity for use in bond ladders and other strategies. BulletShares ETFs have designated years of maturities that are included in the ETF’s name. Each BulletShares ETF is designed to terminate in December of the designated year and make a final distribution at maturity. At each fund’s expected termination, the net asset value (NAV) of the ETF’s assets is distributed to investors without any action on their part3.

As BulletShares ETFs approach maturity, their durations decrease. In the last six months of the ETF’s maturity year, it is anticipated that the bonds in the portfolio will either mature or be called. Proceeds for these events will then be held either in cash or in cash equivalents such as US Treasury bills or commercial paper.

As your BulletShares ETFs mature, you may want to consult with an investment professional and explore having the distribution proceeds invested in a BulletShares ETF in a subsequent maturity year.

Investment risks

  • Invesco does not provide tax advice.  Please note that the Invesco BulletShares ETFs are US-domiciled funds and there may be tax implications for Swiss investors. Tax treatment is subject to government legislation and therefore subject to change at any time.  Consult an independent tax advisor for advice regarding your own tax position. The value of investments and any income will fluctuate (this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations) and investors may not get back the full amount invested.

    About Risk

    Credit ratings are assigned by Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations based on assessment of the credit worthiness of the underlying bond issuers. The ratings range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest) and are subject to change. Not rated indicates the debtor was not rated, and should not be interpreted as indicating low quality. Futures and other derivatives are not eligible for assigned credit ratings by any NRSRO and are excluded from quality allocations. For more information on rating methodologies, please visit the following NRSRO websites: standardandpoors.com and select "Understanding Ratings" under Rating Resources and moodys.com and select "Rating Methodologies" under Research and Ratings.

    BulletShares ETFs

    There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund’s return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.

    Investments focused in a particular sector, such as financial, are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

    The Fund is non-diversified and may experience greater volatility than a more diversified investment. 

    Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.

    During the final year of the Fund’s operations, as the bonds mature and the portfolio transitions to cash and cash equivalents, the Fund’s yield will generally tend to move toward the yield of cash and cash equivalents and thus may be lower than the yields of the bonds previously held by the Fund and/or bonds in the market. If interest rates fall, it is possible that issuers of callable securities will call or prepay their securities before maturity, causing the  Fund to reinvest proceeds in securities bearing lower interest rates and reducing the Fund’s income and distributions.

    An issuer may be unable or unwilling to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer’s credit rating.

    The Fund currently intends to effect creations and redemptions principally for cash, rather than principally in-kind because of the nature of the Fund's investments. As such, investments in the Fund may be less tax efficient than investments in ETFs that create and redeem in-kind.

    Unlike a direct investment in bonds, the Fund’s income distributions will vary over time and the breakdown of returns between Fund distributions and liquidation proceeds are not predictable at the time of investment. For example, at times the Fund may make distributions at a greater (or lesser) rate than the coupon payments received, which will result in the Fund returning a lesser (or greater) amount on liquidation than would otherwise be the case. The rate of Fund distribution payments may affect the tax characterization of returns, and the amount received as liquidation proceeds upon Fund termination may result in a gain or loss for tax purposes. The risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers can include fluctuations in foreign currencies, political and economic instability, and foreign taxation issues.

    Income generated from the Fund is based primarily on prevailing interest rates, which can vary widely over the short- and long-term. If interest rates drop, the Fund's income may drop as well. During periods of rising interest rates, an issuer may exercise its right to pay principal on an obligation later than expected, resulting in a decrease in the value of the obligation and in a decline in the Fund’s income.

    An issuer’s ability to prepay principal prior to maturity can limit the Fund’s potential gains. Prepayments may require the Fund to replace the loan or debt security with a lower yielding security, adversely affecting the Fund’s yield.

    The values of junk bonds fluctuate more than those of high quality bonds and can decline significantly over short time periods.

    The Fund may invest in privately issued securities, including 144A securities which are restricted (i.e. not publicly traded). The liquidity market for Rule 144A securities may vary, as a result, delay or difficulty in selling such securities may result in a loss to the Fund.
