UBS Asset Management launches new long-duration US Treasury inflation-linked ETF


UBS Asset Management (UBS AM) has launched the UBS ETFs Bloomberg Barclays TIPS 10+ UCITS (hedged to GBP) A-dis ETF on the London and Zurich SIX Stock Exchanges.

This new inflation-linked ETF enables investors to counter potential future spikes in expected long-term US inflation rates in Sterling terms. The embedded currency hedge is a valuable feature in times of elevated foreign exchange uncertainty. UBS AM is Europe’s largest provider of currency hedged ETF products (source: ETFGI, December 2018).
The UBS Bloomberg Barclays TIPS 10+ UCITS (hedged to GBP) A-dis ETF tracks the Bloomberg Barclays US Government 10+ Year Inflation-Linked Bond™ hedged to GBP (Total Return) Index.
There is growing concern that inflationary pressures may rise again, primarily due to persistently expansive central bank monetary policies. With this in mind, investors are increasingly considering how to best inflation-proof their investment returns, and deliver a real yield over and above inflation rates.
Andrew Walsh, Head of Passive and ETF Specialist Sales UK & Ireland, says: “We are very pleased to expand our Fixed Income offering to include a fund which helps our clients achieve a targeted exposure to long duration US TIPS coupled with the benefits of GBP-hedging. Sterling based investors who are considering US Treasuries with inflation protection and believe that there is scope for the GBP to appreciate against the USD should examine this unique ETF. This TIPS 10+ GBP-hedged ETF perfectly complements our existing UBS TIPS 1-10 GBP-hedged UCITS ETF”.
