The iShares EUR High Yield Corp Bond ESG UCITS ETF - Acc provides investors with exposure to fixed income and euro-denominated high yield bonds issued by companies worldwide that also meet sustainability criteria. Only debt securities from the industrial, financial services and utilities sectors and with a minimum residual maturity of one year and a minimum outstanding volume of €250 million are considered.
