The SPDR DB International Government Inflation-Protected Bond (WIP) began trading on the American stock exchange March 19. The index, DB Global Government ex-US inflation-Link Bond Capped Index, uses 120 inflation-indexed bonds from 18 developed and emerging counties outside the U.S.

BusinessWire reports the expense ratio at 0.50%. The ETF joins the iShares Lehman TIPs ETF (TIP) in this area of the market.

Bonds, in general, can be a safer place for investors to stash their money when the markets are haywire.
