New Currency-Hedged ETFs Coming Soon

There are 5 new currency-hedged ETFs in the works from Deutsche Bank...

* DBBR - DBX Brazil Currency-Hedged Equity Fund
* DBCN - DBX MSCI Canada Currency-Hedged Fund
* DBEM - DBX MSCI Emerging Markets Currency-Hedged Equity Fund
* DBEF - DBX MSCI EAFE Currency-Hedged Equity Fund

The strategy behind the new ETFs is utilize forward contracts to keep fluctuations in the price of the currencies under control and minimize the risk.

The new funds are near launch and just recently disclosed their underlying benchmarks. And as you can see, they have their names and symbols. When they are ready to go, I'll be sure to let you know, so stay tuned.
