Analyst Report

This ETF is one of several options that gives investors access to inflation-protected bonds, an asset class that may have appeal to those looking to protect portfolios from the adverse impact of inflation. Unlike many funds in the Inflation Protected Bonds ETFdb Category, ILB is actively-managed and also includes international exposure. This geographic diversification can be valuable within a fixed income portfolio; most investors maintain a strong home country bias when building bond exposure that can limit the effectiveness of this asset class. Given the broad focus of this fund, ILB may be useful as a component of a long-term portfolio, complementing the exposure offered by funds such as AGG or BND (which have no international exposure). However, investors should take note of some of the limitations surrounding TIPS as a tool for protecting against inflation; the underlying assets of ILB are bonds, and as such may be adversely impacted by increases in interest rates (which tend to occur in inflationary environments). This ETF spreads holdings across a number of different countries, including both developed and emerging markets. As such, ILB may offer a more attractive yield profile than funds focused exclusively on U.S. debt, and may also offer exposure to unique measures of inflation. Those seeking exposure to U.S. TIPS have a number of options available to them, including GTIP which offers comparable exposure as well as the ultra-popular TIP. Those looking to avoid U.S. securities entirely may find ITIP to be a useful product.
