Investor demand for European fixed-income ETFs is continuing to grow, year after year. In the 12 months to February 22, 2018, fixed-income ETFs domiciled in Europe had a cumulative inflow of 14.3 percent – or EUR 21 billion – according to data from Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM).
An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a security that trades on a stock exchange. The ETF tracks an index, bonds or a basket of assets. Like equity ETFs, fixed-income ETFs offer investors exposure to a collection of underlaying securities, and in this case bonds.
