DWS launches three new maturity products to its range of Xtrackers ETFs on US government bonds: LT13TR; LT09TR; LUTLTR


DWS writes that with three new Xtrackers ETFs, it is adding further maturity bands to its range of products that track the performance of US government bonds. The ETFs track various indices from the provider Bloomberg, which offer access to US Treasuries with remaining maturities of three to seven years, seven to 10 years and 10 years and longer. 

The firm writes that they allow investors to target specific segments of the yield curve and take advantage of additional investment opportunities at a time of increased interest rates and volatility in the bond markets. The new ETFs are listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange.

The ETFs physically replicate the respective index and distribute the income; the firm writes that their annual management fee is a cost-efficient 0.06 per cent. DWS also reduced the fee for existing products to this level at the beginning of December in order to offer consistent access to the range. Specifically, this relates to the Xtrackers II US Treasuries UCITS ETF and the Xtrackers II US Treasuries 1-3 UCITS ETF, for which the flat fee was previously 0.07 per cent each. In addition, the fee for the Xtrackers II USD Overnight Rate Swap UCITS ETF, which tracks short-term US money market yields, was reduced from 0.15 per cent to 0.10 per cent.

DWS writes that it has many years of experience in the conception and management of ETFs on US government bonds since 2009. A total of around USD4.7 billion is managed in Xtrackers ETFs on US Treasuries. “In view of the rise in interest rates, US government bonds are an important portfolio component for many investors. With the new products, Xtrackers completes the maturity spectrum of US Treasury ETFs and enables more precise duration management for different investment strategies,” says Michael Mohr, Global Head of Xtrackers Products at DWS.
