German term or phrase: unter ertragsaspekten
Last question on this text...
Press release from German bank

"Bei den Eigenanlagen in Wertpapiere hat die Bank den Bestand an Schuldverschreibungen unter Ertragsaspekten um X% verringert".

Are "Schuldverschreibungen unter Ertragsaspekten" a special type of bond, e.g., a variable-yield bond/ profit-sharing bond or maybe more generally 'yield bonds'? or does Ertragsaspekten simply mean "in terms of yield/profit" All help appreciated, thanks
