Deutsche Bank has listed 24 fixed income db x-trackers ETFs on the SIX Swiss Exchange, boosting the issuer's total offering to 72 products in Switzerland.
The listing follows the launch of db x-trackers’ equity, commodity and hedge funds ETFs, placing the ETF provider in second place in terms of the number of products listed.
The 24 ETFs provide exposure to US, German and eurozone sovereign bond markets and money markets, as well as inflation-linked bond benchmark indices, corporate bonds, corporate credit and emerging market bonds.
The latest range also includes products that allow investors to take short positions in the underlying sovereign debt and corporate credit markets.
The issuer says some of the funds are ideal for the less risk averse investors who are looking for additional yield. These include, for example, the Emerging Markets Liquid Eurobond Index ETF, which reflects the performance of emerging market sovereign bonds, or the iBoxx € Liquid Corporate 100 Index ETF, tracking the performance of 100 euro denominated investment grade corporate bonds.
Conversely, the range offers two iBoxx Germany ETFs linked to the German government bond market, providing stability in a portfolio.
The Short iBoxx € Sovereigns Eurozone Daily Total Return Index ETFand the US Treasuries Short Daily ETF, provide a hedge against rising interest rates. These ETFs inversely reflect the daily performance of their respective government bond markets, allowing for gains when bond prices fall.
The iBoxx Global Inflation-Linked Total Return Index Hedged ETF offers exposure to the global inflation-linked bonds market. The underlying index tracks an investment in more than 90 different inflation-linked bonds from nine different issuers.
The total expense ratios for the ETFs range from 0.15% to 0.55%.
