iShares will launch 3 currency hedged ETFs on Feb 4


The iShares Currency Hedged MSCI Japan ETF (HEWJ) and Germany ETF (HEWG) will hold a portfolio of large- and mid-cap Japanese and German equities (respectively), while mitigating exposure to fluctuations between the value of the Japanese yen and euro (respectively) against the U.S. dollar.

The iShares Currency Hedged MSCI EAFE ETF (HEFA) represents a more global approach and will hold a portfolio of large- and mid-cap equities in Europe, Australasia, and the Far East, while mitigating exposure to fluctuations between the value of the component currencies and the U.S. dollar.

This sector of the ETF universe is currently dominated by WisdomTree (WETF) and Deutsche Bank (DB) sponsored funds.

Other currency hedged equity ETFs: DBJP, DXJ, HEDJ, DXJS, DXPS, DXGE, DXKW, DBJP, DBEF, DBAP, DBUK, DBEU, DBGR, DBEM, DBKO, DBMX, DBAW, DBBR
