Going Abroad For Higher Yields

Debt offerings from the US federal government are a key holding for many fixed-income investors. But high yields haven’t been one of their selling points recently, with the 10-year Treasury note is expected to yield 2.1% over the next 12 months, whereas in September 2013 it was trading at 2.66%.[3] Meanwhile, other countries, such as Canada, Australia and China, are in less of a fiscal-budget crunch[2] and their bonds are offering higher yields than US Treasuries. Throw in the chance to gain some protection against a possible decline in the US dollar, and foreign bonds could be a valuable part of a fixed-income portfolio. This motif seeks to provide exposure to the debt of foreign governments and corporations via bond ETFs. See more
