UBS Asset Management has expanded its fixed income range with the launch of a GDP-hedged 10-year US Treasury inflation-linked ETF.
The UBS Bloomberg Barclays TIPS 10+ UCITS (hedged to GBP) A-dis ETF is listed on the London Stock Exchange and Zurich SIX Stock Exchange with a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.25%.
It will track the Bloomberg Barclays US Government 10+ Year Inflation-Linked Bond hedged to GBP (Total Return) index.
The firm said the ETF would help counter the potential for future spikes in US inflation rates, which has become a growing concern for the market, primarily due to “expansive” central bank monetary policies.
Andrew Walsh, head of passive and ETF specialist sales UK & Ireland, commented: “We are very pleased to expand our fixed income offering to include a fund which helps our clients achieve a targeted exposure to long duration US TIPS coupled with the benefits of GBP-hedging.
“Sterling based investors who are considering US Treasuries with inflation protection and believe that there is scope for the GBP to appreciate against the USD should examine this unique ETF.
“This ETF perfectly complements our existing UBS TIPS 1-10 GBP-hedged UCITS ETF.”
