This ETF can be thought of as the international counterpart to TIP, as it offers exposure to inflation-protected bonds issued by primarily European governments. Because the principal of the underlying holdings adjust with inflation, these securities have become popular as a tool to protect against rising asset prices and a jump in CPI. WIP is an attractive tool for investors looking to diversify fixed income holdings beyond U.S. borders, especially if interest rates fail to rise enough in the near term to crush inflation. While the fund does have heavy exposure to European government bonds, it makes a decent allocation to emerging markets as well as Brazil, South Africa, and Mexico all find there way into the top ten holdings. This method could help to boost the overall yield of the product but could add to risk as well as many of these nations already have high rates of inflation. In terms of maturity, the fund is heavily spread out among various levels but it is tilted towards short-term bonds as notes that mature in less than a decade make up more than half of the total portfolio. Thanks to this, the fund's yield may not be as high as other products that focus on longer term securities but the diversification benefits and the safety of TIPS make this a fund that could make up a meaningful allocation of any long term portfolio.
