Rate-hedged IG bond ETF launches


Open for trade today is the ProShares Investment Grade Interest Rate Hedged ETF (IGHG) whose underlying index tries to achieve a duration of zero by offseting corporate debt holdings with a short position in Treasurys.

ProShares this summer launched a similarly hedged fund, but one aimed at high yield, the ProShares HighYield Interest Rate Hedged ETF (HYHG).

IG corporate bond ETFs: LQD, VCSH, VCIT, VCLT, CORP, CSJ, CIU, CFT, SCPB, LWC, CLY, ITR, QLTA, PFIG, IGS, SLQD, CBND, QLTB, IGU

    Probably a good fund. Corporates are overpriced, but not as much as treasuries.
