Top 10 Government, Inflation Protected Bond ETFs

Stocks in this article: SHY IEF TLT IEI AGZ TIP STPZ IPE STIP

WIP: DB Global Government ex-US Inflation-Linked Bond Capped ETF (WIP) has a description that might take some time get out of your mouth. The bottom line, like TIP, it gives you exposure to both developed and emerging market bonds from outside the U.S. The ETF was launched by State Street in March 2003. It has a relatively high expense ratio of .50%, AUM of $1.35B and average daily trading volume of 163K shares.

The current yield as of May 2011 is a little more than 2% and 1-year performance is a whopping 17.28%. Much of this success is due to more realistic inflation measurements away from the U.S. and we must remember inflation data in emerging markets is high, allowing for better adjustments.
