Inflation is rising across the globe, including in the US. Perhaps more pressingly, the Fed seems absolutely intent on hiking rates as the economy continues to perform very strongly. With that in mind, profiting from rising rates, or at least insulating one’s portfolio, needs to become a priority. Accordingly, here are some ETFs to help: iShares Floating Rate Bond ETF (FLOT), the SPDR Blmbg Barclays Inv Grd Flt Rt ETF (FLRN), the ProShares High Yield—Interest Rate Hdgd (HYHG), the SPDR Portfolio Short Term Corp Bd ETF (SPSB), and the Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH).
FINSUM: The ProShares fund seems the most interesting of the lot as it invests in high yield bonds while shorting Treasuries to protect against rate hikes, all while delivering less rate sensitivity than regular short-term bonds.
