DeAWM launches three new interest rate hedged ETFs


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has launched three interest rate hedged ETFs providing exposure to US dollar denominated investment grade, high yield corporate and emerging markets sovereign and quasi sovereign debt.

The ETFs are listed for trading on the NYSE Arca under the following symbols:
Deutsche X-trackers Investment Grade Bond – Interest Rate Hedged ETF
Deutsche X-trackers High Yield Corporate Bond – Interest Rate Hedged ETF
Deutsche X-trackers Emerging Markets Bond – Interest Rate Hedged ETF

“Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management continues to bring to market innovative indexing products and strategies that anticipate investors’ portfolio needs,” says Fiona Bassett, Head of Deutsche AWM’s Passive Business in the Americas. “We designed IGIH, HYIH and EMIH as tools for managing duration, a source of both risk and potential return that can be dialled up and down using this new product suite. This feature may be particularly appealing as investors seek to mitigate solutions for reducing the interest rate sensitivity of their bond portfolios in anticipation of rising rates.”

“We believe a particularly compelling approach in today’s environment is to hedge interest rate risk using ETFs,” says Dodd Kittsley, Head of ETF Strategy at Deutsche AWM. “Traditional strategies for addressing interest rate risk include shortening duration or shifting into different asset classes, which lower exposure to interest rate risk but also reduce exposure to the risk and compensation of credit. Interest rate hedged ETFs allow investors to seek to mitigate the impact of rising rates while preserving desired bond exposures. On a standalone basis or in conjunction with other fixed income holdings, these ETFs could prove a powerful tool for risk management.”
