Announced in June, NASDAQ OMX partnered with Accretive Asset Management (AAM) to co-brand and expand the NASDAQ BulletShares® Indexes, a pioneering and innovative family of target-maturity corporate and high yield bond indexes. Assets of the NASDAQ BulletShares-linked Guggenheim ETFs have grown nearly 60% in 2013 ? from $1.7B as of 12/19/2012 to over $3B as of 8/2/2013.

To put this in perspective, U.S. Fixed Income ETF assets were virtually unchanged YTD through 6/30/13 ($243.1B as of year-end 2012 and $243.6B as of the end of the second quarter in 2013*).By contrast, over this same six-month period, the BulletShares ETFs are up $1B.

"Bulletshares ETF investors recognize the significant advantages of building portfolios using target maturity bond funds that act like a bond. This has pushed Bulletshares ETF assets to its historical high,” said David Krein, Head of Index Research, NASDAQ OMX.
