Introducing Betashares’ new US Treasury ETFs

We are pleased to announce the addition of two US Treasury ETFs to our range of quality fixed income investment solutions.

The two new ETFs are:

  • Betashares Inflation-Protected U.S. Treasury Bond Currency Hedged ETF (ASX: UTIP) provides exposure to a portfolio of US Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (‘TIPS’).
  • Betashares U.S. Treasury Bond 7-10 Year Currency Hedged ETF (ASX: US10) provides exposure to a portfolio of US Treasuries with maturities between 7 and 10 years.

Between January and August this year, cash and fixed income ETFs have received nearly $4.4 billion in net inflows from investors, making it the highest growth category in the Australian ETF industry year to date. In terms of cash and fixed income ETFs, Betashares is the largest manager of investor capital and has continued to take a leadership position in terms of net inflows to the category. As of September 2023, Betashares manages over $9 billion in cash and fixed income ETFs.

Betashares CEO, Mr Alex Vynokur, said the two new ETFs will provide targeted exposure to parts of the world’s most important global fixed income market.

“We’re proud to continue to build on our commitment to expand the range of quality fixed income investment solutions available to investors and their financial advisers,” Mr Vynokur said.

“As an asset class, fixed income has resonated strongly with investors amid the fastest rate hiking cycle in a generation. In this climate, we’re proud to expand the range of options available to investors looking to build a sophisticated fixed income allocation within a well diversified portfolio. Our expanded range of U.S. Treasury ETFs will allow investors to gain exposure to more parts of the market that have traditionally been harder to access” Mr Vynokur concluded.

UTIP commenced trading on the ASX on 20 September and US10 commenced trading on the ASX on 26 September. More information about the funds can be found below.
