Investors Continue to Gravitate Toward Bond ETFs

by: Adam Kommel

Dow Jones' John Spence notes that investors bearish on the US dollar have been flocking to bond, commodity and international-stock ETFs.

"The shift into fixed-income ETFs has been an ongoing theme thus far in 2009; year to date, the category has brought in about $26.7 billion of new assets, which makes it the most popular ETF category so far in 2009," Morningstar ETF analyst John Gabriel was quoted in the article as saying.

Spence spotlights iShares Barclays TIPS Bond Fund, which tracks Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities and has almost $17 billion under its belt.

He also mentions the $37 billion SPDR Gold Shares fund, which tracks gold prices, and the $4 billion PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund, which tracks a basket of commodities.

In the emerging markets sector, Spence points to the recent success of iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index Fund, Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF, and iShares MSCI Brazil Index Fund
