Three new government and corporate bond iShares ETFs launch on Xetra


BlackRock has launched three new ETFs on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt offering a broadly diversified investment in corporate or government bonds, either from emerging and/or industrialised countries and with investment grade or as high-yield exposure.

The iShares JP Morgan $ EM Bond UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Acc) offers an investment in emerging market government and quasi government bonds denominated in US dollars. The bonds have a fixed interest rate and a maturity of at least two years with a minimum outstanding amount of USD1 billion . Dividends are reinvested.

The iShares Global Corp Bond UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Dis) allows investors to participate in bonds issued by companies from emerging and developed countries worldwide that have an investment grade rating. The bonds have a maturity of at least one year and a fixed coupon.

The iShares Global High Yield Corp Bond UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Dis) provides access to a high-yield exposure that reflects the performance of the globally developed market for liquid corporate bonds with a rating below investment grade status. Bonds in the index have a maximum original maturity of 15 years, bonds newly included in the index have a minimum maturity of 1.5 years. The index currently includes corporate bonds denominated in US dollars, euros, pounds sterling and Canadian dollars.

All three ETF products use a hedging strategy to minimise the exchange rate risk between the base currency of the index components and the euro.
