What does the IHEB invest in?

IHEB seeks to track the performance of the JP Morgan EMBI Global Core Index (AUD Hedged), before fees and expenses. This index is designed to measure the performance of US dollar-denominated fixed and floating rate emerging market bonds issued by sovereign and quasi-sovereign entities. These bonds come from emerging market countries such as Mexico, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Russia, and most of the bonds have a credit rating between AA and B.

What do investors use IHEB for?

Investors could use the IHEB ETF to diverisify an existing portfolio and seek potentially higher levels of income compared to developed market bonds – all the while potentially minimising the impact of Australian dollar volatility on investment returns.

Best ETFs warnings

The following warnings are applied by our team, based on quantitative metrics and our internal methodology. These risks are not exhaustive and therefore they should not be relied upon. Always read the PDS of the function and speak to your financial adviser before acting on this information.

When an ETF does not have a sufficiently long track record — typically, we consider this to be at least 3 years — the ETF is could be at a higher risk of being closed down (if it doesn’t grow), and the historical performance and returns (if any) cannot be relied upon.

Tax Domicile

When a fund/ETF has a “domicile” of Australia it means it is a registered fund in Australia for tax purposes.

Registry

Computershare is not only the largest share registry in Australia but also the world. The company was founded in 1978 as one of Melbourne’s first start-up technology companies, initially providing computer services to businesses.
