The Simplify High Yield PLUS Credit Hedge ETF (CDX) seeks to maximize current income by investing primarily in high-yield bonds while mitigating credit risk.

The credit risk premium is an attractive return source that may provide significant income. But credit spreads can turn swiftly, wiping out years of gains quickly. CDX is designed to provide core high yield exposure, with its attractive income, while simultaneously deploying a host of compelling credit hedge techniques to alleviate the blowup risk.

Credit hedging can be very expensive, so it is paramount to be flexible in our approach to hedging within the space. CDX will opportunistically invest, based on cost-to-payout ratios, in CDX calls, Quality-Junk factor-based hedges, and SPX puts.
