New iShares bond ETFs on Xetra


Two new ETFs from iShares have been tradable on Xetra and via the trading venue Börse Frankfurt since Friday.

The iShares US Mortgage Backed Securities UCITS ETF EUR Hedged offers investors access to the broadly diversified market for US mortgage-backed securities issued and guaranteed by government-sponsored companies such as Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. 

The fixed-rate US securities with a pass-through structure have an investment grade rating and are collateralised by pools of mortgages from US homeowners. Through the pass-through structure, security holders directly receive the principal plus interest from the pools of homeowner mortgages. All securities must have a weighted average remaining maturity of at least one year.

The iShares US Aggregate Bond UCITS ETF EUR Hedged provides access to the global market for investment grade US dollar denominated bonds. The fixed-interest bonds are government bonds, government-related bonds, corporate bonds, and mortgage-backed bonds. The minimum residual term is one year.

Both instruments use futures contracts to hedge currency fluctuations against the US dollar.
