Deutsche X-trackers US platform launches high yield bond ETF

RELATED TOPICS​

Deutsche Asset Management has launched the Deutsche X-trackers USD High Yield Corporate Bond exchange-traded fund (HYLB).

The new ETF will provide investors access to benchmark exposure to high yield bonds.
 
“For investors seeking pure high-yield beta exposure as part of their diversification strategy in their overall asset allocation, they can now do so in a fast and cost-effective way through the Deutsche X-trackers USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF,” says Fiona Bassett, head of passive asset management, Americas. “In the current low interest rate environment, high-yield bonds provide investors with a potential source of income. In addition, as the market is anticipating an interest-rate hike by the US Federal Reserve Board, the high-yield market tends to be less impacted by rate moves, shielding investors from potential volatility.”
 
The US platform also offers Deutsche X-trackers High Yield Corporate Bond-Interest Rate Hedged ETF (Bats: HYIH), which provides exposure to high-yield bonds while potentially reducing the interest rate risk in an investment portfolio. HYIH seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Solactive High Yield Corporate Bond – Interest Rate Hedged Index, which aims to mitigate exposure of interest rate sensitivity across the yield curve in a rising rate environment.
