FAQs

  • What are US Treasuries?

    Like any government, the US government needs money to fund itself. In order to do this, the United States Department of the Treasury issues debt – sometimes called Treasuries – to finance government spending as an alternative to taxation.

    The market for US government debt is the most liquid and deep of any type of financial instrument. As of January 2022, there is more than US$23 trillion in outstanding Treasuries. Every day, hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Treasuries change hands. Treasuries are held and used by countless institutions around the world. They often use them to earn a return on their cash in a low-risk way. However, uses are not limited to this. They are also used for analytical purposes as their yields set the risk-free rate of return.
  • How do you choose which bonds get included in the fund?

    USTB is passively managed. It tracks an index of US Treasuries calculated and published by IHS Markit, a subsidiary of S&P Global, and does not seek to outperform its benchmark. The index reflects the performance of tradable US dollar denominated debt issued by the US government. Bonds need to have a maturity of at least 1 year (exposure across the whole yield curve) and a minimum outstanding amount of USD $1 billion per issue
  • What role does DWS play in managing USTB?

    USTB is issued and managed by Global X Australia but gains its exposure to US Treasuries via an ETF issued and managed by DWS. USTB buys and sells units in the European-listed Xtrackers US Treasuries UCITS ETF (Ticker: XUTD), and manages this exposure to ensure the fund tracks the index as closely as possible. XUTD tracks the same index of US Treasuries but is not hedged to Australian dollars. Global X Australia separately manages the currency hedging.
  • Why do you use currency hedging?

    The main attraction of bonds as an asset class is that they provide capital stability and reliable income. This is especially true of US Treasuries. Yet when Australian investors buy unhedged Treasuries, the changing value of the US dollar elevates the risk of capital loss as currencies can move against investors. Additionally, currency fluctuations can swell or shrink income payments. In order to reduce this volatility, and provide more reliable income, we have chosen to use currency hedging for USTB.
  • What are the potential benefits of using USTB in a portfolio?

    The fund can be used to provide a steady return on investment. US Treasuries have provided steady income in all kinds of investment climates for centuries. The appeal of US Treasuries has become more acute in the past 10 years, as many Asian and European countries have experienced sustained near-zero or sub-zero interest rates.

    Cheaper access is another advantage of using USTB. Investors can buy US Treasuries directly in some instances. However, trading treasuries directly can come with wider spreads than trading treasury ETFs.

    Currency hedging is another benefit. The types of financial instruments used to currency hedge a portfolio – currency forwards – are not easily available to most investors. USTB provides currency hedging, managed by professional traders.
  • What are some of the potential risks?

    US Treasuries are usually characterised as lower-risk assets. However, they are not without risks. Two key risks include:

    Inflation risk. When inflation rises, the value of fixed coupon bonds can fall. This is because inflation erodes the real value of the coupon payments that bonds make. Rising inflation can have the added effect of causing central banks to increase interest rates. Rising interest rates also lower the value of fixed interest bonds.

    Interest rate risk. When interest rates rise, prices of debt securities typically fall. (The vulnerability of debt securities to interest rate rises is commonly measured by a statistic called “duration”). This means that changes in monetary policy or guidance by the US Federal Reserve are likely to affect the performance of the fund.
