LOIM and ETF Securities offer UK currency hedged ETF
Lombard Odier Investment Management (LOIM) and ETF Securities have announced the launch of a new currency-hedged share class of its existing Global Corporate Bond Fundamental ETF.
LOIM and ETF Securities have now listed a GBP hedged version of the Corporate Bond Fundamental ETF on the London Stock Exchange.
The new fund aims to offer investors exposure to foreign assets whilst providing greater investor protection against the impact of adverse currency movements and allowing them to obtain a purer exposure to the underlying asset.
Kevin Corrigan, head of Fundamental Fixed Income, Lombard Odier IM comments: “The continuing volatility of currency markets has driven bond investors to seek solutions which provide greater protection from adverse fluctuations in foreign-exchange rates.”
By using a hedged share class, an investor is safeguarded from a divergence in performance between the index returns in its local currency and the returns of a non-hedged ETF product that is listed in a different currency” he adds.
