SEC Yield

The SEC yield is a yield calculation devised by the SEC in order to bring some uniformity to yield data for US investment funds. The SEC yield is calculated as the net investment income (after expenses) of the fund over the past 30 days, less any income generated from capital gains or other sources; clearly making it most applicable to fixed income or bond focused investment funds. The SEC yields are useful as a standardized way of comparing the yields on bond funds.

Synonyms: Bond fund yield, 30-day yield
