We believe now is the time for active fixed income management, and the US Corporate Bond markets offers quality, scale and diversity across sectors, often with better yield outlooks than government bonds. “You have a broad diversification of industries, which creates a significant opportunity for asset allocation.” Brad Komenda, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager at Amundi-Pioneer Asset Management USA Inc.

The Harvest US Investment Grade Bond Plus ETF, an actively managed ETF focused on high quality investment grade credit markets that is integrated with Amundi’s award winning ESG process.
