WisdomTree Investments has filed to launch an actively managed exchange traded fund (ETF) to add to their growing suite of funds.

The new fund will be called the  Global Real Return Fund and aims to provide returns above inflation. Inflation has been a concern ever since the government began printing money in an effort to prop up the economy gripped by recession. [Guggenheim Files For 4  International ETFs.]

Shishir Nigam for Active ETFs reports that the fund’s managers will invest in fixed-income securities and other inflation-linked instruments both in developed and emerging markets around the world. Outside of the United States, the fund will focus on investing in inflation-linked bonds from countries that are leading exporters of commodities – Australia, Canada, Brazil, South Africa and Chile.

The securities in the basket will give inflation protection, however, they will be subject to the real interest rate.  [New ETFs That Cover The Financial Sector.]
