New iShares ETF provides access to European government bonds


BlackRock has launched a new European government bond focused ETF on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt.

The iShares EUR Govt Bond 20yr Target Duration UCITS ETF enables investors to participate in the performance of European government bonds with an aggregate maturity of 20 years.

The bonds are selected from the Markit iBoxx EUR Eurozone 15+ Index. This index comprises fixed-income and zero coupon bonds with a maturity of at least 15 years issued by a central government of a member of the euro zone denominated in euro or a pre-euro currency. Only bonds with a minimum rating of AA- or better from Fitch, Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services will be included in the ETF.

The ETF always consists of bonds from at least six different issues and the weight of each issue is limited to 30 percent.
