WisdomTree launches three fixed income ETPs

RELATED TOPICS​

WisdomTree has launched three Boost ETPs, offering investors inverse exposure to UK Gilts, German Bunds and US Treasuries.

The products include the Boost Gilts 10Y 1x Short Daily ETP, as well as the Boost Bund 30Y 3x Short Daily ETP and the Boost US Treasuries 30Y 3x Short Daily ETP, both of which are market firsts in Europe.
 
“We’re excited to be launching three inverse fixed income ETPs at a time when such products are attracting the majority of flows year-to-date in the European short-and-leveraged market,” says Jose Poncela, Head of ETNs at WisdomTree in Europe. “The Boost Bund 30Y 3x Short Daily ETP, in particular, is the first fixed income ETP in Europe that offers inverse exposure to German Bunds with a maturity of over 25 years.
 
“It’s yet another example of our commitment to innovation in the European short-and-leveraged space.”
 
The products launch at a time when investors are seeking cost effective hedging tools for their longer duration fixed income portfolios in an environment of mounting inflationary pressures.
 
Viktor Nossek, Director of Research at WisdomTree in Europe, says: “Investors mandated with finding yield in Europe’s high-grade bond market have had to take significant duration risk to do so. These investors now look particularly vulnerable against a backdrop of inflationary pressures emanating from domestic demand-led growth as the Eurozone economy accelerates. Most at risk are Bunds, as – aside from having benefited disproportionately from the vast quantities purchased by the ECB – their yields remain well below inflation.”
 
The ETPs complement WisdomTree’s existing Boost ETPs including the Boost US Treasuries 10Y 3x Short Daily ETP and the Boost US Treasuries 10Y 5x Short Daily ETP. The ETPs list in various currencies and exchanges as shown in the below table.
