Goldman Sachs Asset Management launches treasury inflation-protected securities ETF

RELATED TOPICS​

GSAM has launched GTIP, an ETF that seeks to offer smart beta exposure to treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS). GTIP, GSAM’s fourth Access fixed income ETF is competitively priced to investors at 12 basis points.

“In an inflationary economic environment, GTIP provides investors with a potential hedge through its innovative screening approach to TIPS bonds,” says Michael Crinieri, GSAM’s Global Head of ETF Strategy. “The addition of GTIP further highlights the mission of our Access ETF lineup, providing investors with lower-cost bond funds.”
 
GTIP seeks to track the FTSE Goldman Sachs Treasury Inflation Protected USD Bond Index, owned and calculated by FTSE Fixed Income using concepts developed with GSAM. The Index uses a transparent, rules-based methodology, designed to measure the performance of bonds that meet certain liquidity and issuance criteria.
 
“TIPS present an attractive diversification opportunity for many investors with relatively low correlations to other major asset classes,” says Jason Singer, portfolio manager for GTIP. “We are excited to extend our Access ETF lineup and provide investors with a smarter, more systematic way to invest in the bond market.”
 
GTIP will be passively managed by GSAM’s Global Fixed Income team, whose deep market expertise and extensive resources will aid in trade execution and optimising portfolio construction.
 
“Our continued relationship with GSAM and the launch of their latest ETF showcases our focus on developing innovative indices that balance risk in a systematic manner,” says Jayni Kosoff, Managing Director, US FI Index Sales, FTSE Russell.
