Three new Xtrackers ETFs focussed on global corporate bonds and short-term US government bonds are now trading on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt.
The Xtrackers USD Corporate Bond UCITS ETF gives investors the opportunity to invest in fixed-interest corporate bonds denominated in US dollars.

The Xtrackers ESG USD Corporate Bond UCITS ETF also takes sustainability criteria into account. Only those bonds issued by companies that meet certain environmental, social and governance criteria (so-called ESG criteria) are accepted.
The Xtrackers US Treasuries Ultrashort Bond UCITS ETF enables investors to participate in both floating-rate and fixed-rate US government bonds with short maturities. Upon admission, the bonds must have a minimum remaining maturity of one month and at the same time may not exceed a maximum maturity of one (fixed-rate) or three years (floating-rate). In addition, there must be an outstanding nominal amount of at least five billion US dollars.
