Multi-Asset Diversification Offers Low-Volume, High-Yield Investment Opportunities


Multi-Asset income strategies have taken rise lately as investors look to use a variety of investment strategies to support their investment goals.

First Trust’s new International Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index Fund (Ticker:YDIV), which is tracking NASDAQ’s International Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index (NQMAXUS). Launching today, this ETF is designed specifically for investors interested in gaining access to multiple asset classes across the global landscape but doing it with a single ETF.

“We are proud that First Trust has selected the NASDAQ International Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index as the basis for their most recent ETF launch,” said David Krein, Managing Director of Research at NASDAQ OMX. “The NASDAQ International Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index is an extension of our already successful NASDAQ U.S. Multi-Asset Diversified Income Index methodology, as it pulls together several high-yielding asset classes from among select international markets into a single diversified and risk controlled index.

Launched earlier this month, the NASDAQ International Multi-Asset Diversification Index tracks five different asset classes, including high-yield ETFs, real estate investment trusts (REITs), preferred stocks, master-limited partnerships, and infrastructure securities.

“We’re delivering solutions that product providers and investors have demanded in the current environment, which underscores NASDAQ Global Indexes’ commitment to innovation in the dividend and income index markets, “ Krein added.
