Deutsche Bank AG (USA) (DB) announced the launch of two fixed income exchange traded funds (ETFs). Deutsche X-trackers Barclays International Treasury Bond Hedged ETF (Ticker:Ticker::IGVT) and Deutsche X-trackers Barclays International Corporate Bond Hedged ETF (Ticker:Ticker::IFIX) will provide investors access to a broad variety of international fixed income exposures without the often high individual bond investment minimums and with the liquidity offered by an exchange-traded product.
“During times of sharp market movements, investors are looking for stable sources of revenue. Through the new Deutsche X-trackers currency-hedged international bonds funds, we are offering investors an opportunity to potentially reduce volatility and drawdown risks while strengthening returns,” said Fiona Bassett, Head of Passive Asset Management in the Americas. “In our view, the currency hedging aspect of IGVT and IFIX allows investors an opportunity to preserve the reliable sources of income, stable and consistent cash flow typically associated with bond investments, decreasing the risk brought on by currency exposure.”
