Db-x to launch fixed-income ETFs in UK

Db x-trackers, Deutsche Bank’s exchange traded fund platform and provider is to launch a range of UK-listed fixed income ETFs early next quarter.

Db x-trackers entered the ETF space in the UK in September 2007 and currently has around 60 products listed on the London stock exchange.

The group has a full range of fixed income ETFs listed in Frankfurt and according to head of db x-trackers UK Manooj Mistry the forthcoming equivalent suite of sterling products have long been on the development agenda.

He says: “Even though we’ve launched 100 products I think there’s still quite a lot to do. I see opportunities in the UK specifically in fixed income ETFs.

Currently we don’t have any fixed income ETFs listed in the UK apart from our money market products but during the next quarter we’re planning to launch UK gilt-linked ETFs and a couple of other products which will complement the equity ETFs we have.”

Mistry says it has always been a strategy to bring fixed income products onto the LSE but it has been a question of time and resources to do so.

“We also see opportunities in structured ETFs such as leveraged ETFs or
or ’short ETFs’ which have a defined pay off. Short ETFs are very
attractive to a lot retail investors or institutional investors who
can’t use derivatives such as futures or swaps and are an easy way to
take a short exposure.

“We still have gaps in terms of our global coverage so there may be more emerging market countries we want to introduce.”


A sense of values

Recession, continuing depression in the property market and deflation/inflation threats are all causing us to reconsider our attitude to money.
