db x-trackers launches fixed income ETF in Switzerland


Deutsche Bank’s exchange-traded fund platform, db x-trackers, has launched a range of fixed income ETFs on the Swiss Exchange.

Following the launch of its equity, commodity and hedge fund ETFs, the new listings boost db x-trackers’ presence on SIX, bringing the total number of listings to 72 and making db x-trackers the number two ETF provider on the exchange.

The 24 fixed income ETFs let investors take exposure to the US, Eurozone and German sovereign bond markets, money market and inflation-linked bond benchmark indices, corporate bonds, corporate credit  (via linkage to leading credit-default swap-based indices) and emerging market bonds. The listings also include products that let investors take immediate short positions in underlying sovereign debt and corporate credit markets.

“We aim to give fixed income investors all the tools they need to effectively perform their trading and hedging activity. These latest listings, with some underlyings uniquely offered by db x-trackers, gives market participants enhanced trading opportunities and greater flexibility,” says Thorsten Michalik, global head of db x-trackers.

The Emerging Markets Liquid Eurobond Index ETF reflects the performance of emerging market sovereign bonds. The iBoxx EUR Liquid Corporate 100 Index ETF reflects the performance of 100 euro denominated investment grade corporate bonds.
Two iBoxx Germany ETFs are linked to the German government bond market.

The Short iBoxx EUR Sovereigns Eurozone Daily Total Return Index ETF and the US Treasuries Short Daily ETF provide investors with a hedge against rising interest rates. Both ETFs mirror the performance of their respective government bond markets inversely, hence gaining in value when bond prices fall.

Investors looking to participate in the performance of the global market for inflation-linked bonds might consider the iBoxx Global Inflation-Linked Total Return Index Hedged ETF. The underlying index currently reflects an investment in more than 90 different inflation-linked bonds from nine different issuers.
