Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to bonds issued by governments outside the U.S., offering an efficient way to access an asset class that is overlooked within the portfolios of many U.S.-based investors. Most fixed income portfolios are comprised almost entirely of securities from U.S. issuers, but the addition of international debt has the potential to enhance returns and add diversification benefits as well. By focusing on short-term debt, BWZ may appeal to investors concerned about the adverse impact of rising interest rates, and is primarily a tactical tool to be used for fine tuning the fixed income side of a portfolio. ISHG will offer generally similar exposure to this ETF, and IGOV and BWX offer a way to access international Treasuries across multiple maturities. When evaluating these ETF options, factors to consider include the breakdown by country, effective duration, and attractiveness of the current yield.
