Covering Two Asset Classes
To make sure that our multi-asset ETFs are widely diversified, we include two asset classes. Historically, they have tended not to move up and down in price together – what investment professionals call a low correlation. The asset classes are:
Euro Government Bonds
Bonds issued in Euro by Eurozone member states such as Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
Bonds issued by large corporations with an investment-grade rating such as Anheuscher Busch, Daimler, JPMorgan and Siemens. All bonds are issued in euro, to avoid currency risk.
Stocks from the 250 firms with the largest market capitalization in the world.
Real Estate Stocks
Global stocks of firms from which invest in real estate, such as offices, warehouses and apartments.
