Deutsche Bank – Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM) announced the launch of Deutsche X-trackers USD High Yield Corporate Bond exchange-traded fund (ETF) (NYSE Arca: HYLB). The most cost efficient high-yield ETF in the US market[1], HYLB will provide investors access to benchmark exposure to high yield bonds.

“For investors seeking pure high-yield beta exposure as part of their diversification strategy in their overall asset allocation, they can now do so in a fast and cost-effective way through the Deutsche X-trackers USD High Yield Corporate Bond ETF,” said Fiona Bassett, Head of Passive Asset Management, Americas. “In the current low interest rate environment, high-yield bonds provide investors with a potential source of income. In addition, as the market is anticipating an interest-rate hike by the US Federal Reserve Board, the high-yield market tends to be less impacted by rate moves, shielding investors from potential volatility.”

The US platform also offers Deutsche X-trackers High Yield Corporate Bond-Interest Rate Hedged ETF (Bats: HYIH), which provides exposure to high-yield bonds while potentially reducing the interest rate risk in an investment portfolio. HYIH seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Solactive High Yield Corporate Bond – Interest Rate Hedged Index, which aims to mitigate exposure of interest rate sensitivity across the yield curve in a rising rate environment.
