US Treasuries top latest global 200 list from Lipper

Funds, including ETFs, invested in long dated US Treasuries top the latest list published by Lipper of the 200 best performing funds globally over the past year.

Rebased in euro return terms, two of the top five funds are invested in the asset class, as are half the top 10 funds.

Leading the returns are two exchange traded products: Direxion Daily 20+ Year Treasury Bull 3X Shares, and PowerShares DB 3x Long 25+ Year Treasury Bond ETN.

Also performing well in the top 10 are: ProShares Ultra 20+ Year Treasury, PIMCO 25+ Year Zero Coupon US Treasury Index, and Vanguard Extended Duration Treasury Index.

The Direxion ETF is looking to provide a returrn that is 300% of the performance of the NYSE 20 Year Plus Treasury Bond Index. This index tracks the total returns of the long term – 20 year and greater – maturity range of the US Treasury bond market.

The PowerShares ETN product is based on indices measuring the performance of long and short investments in CBOT Ultra T-Bond futures. The underlying assets of this in turn are US Treasury bonds with at least 25 years to maturity.

Funds invested in North American equity, emerging Europe, US corporate debt and Brazilian fixed income rounded out the top 10 performing vehicles, according to the Lipper data.
