Deutsche Bank Launches 3 Overseas Hedged Equity ETFs
A new, actively managed short-duration bond ETF from iShares, while RevenueShares rolls out an "ultra dividend" ETF and Direxion brings to market a pair of supergeared junior gold-miners ETFs.
On Tuesday, Oct. 1, Deutsche Bank rolled out three more currency-hedged equity exchange-traded funds devoted to foreign markets.
Borrowing a page from the playbook of WisdomTree, whose WisdomTree Japan Hedged Equity (DXJ) this year has attracted tremendous investor interest, Deutsche Bank now has debuted hedged equity ETFs devoted to the United Kingdom, Europe, and areas of Asia outside of Japan. In some respects, the trio of new ETFs suggests that Deutsche Bank is following something of a copycat strategy relative to WisdomTree, given that the firm recently launched WisdomTree United Kingdom Hedged Equity (DXPS) and since 2010 has issued WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity (HEDJ).
