This ETF owns German treasury EURO Bonds with lifetime between 5.5 years and 2.5 years. It is an average lifetime for treasury bonds.
Germany has a strong manifacturing economy. German state and its citizens have very low debt levels. In my opinion there in nothing in World as safe and risk free as German treasury bonds.
Its main holdigs are:
Germany (Federal Republic Of) 5% 2012-07-04 11.4%
Federal Republic Of Germany 5% 2012-01-04 10.5%
Germany (Federal Republic Of) 5% 2011-07-04 10.1%
Germany (Federal Republic Of) 4.5% 2013-01-04 10.0%
Germany (Federal Republic Of) 4.25% 2014-01-04 9.9%
This ETF yields 3.95% interests and its value went already up 3.74% since I bought 100 shares of RXP2EX.FRA in September worth $15000. I earned $500 on this nice appreciation. I expect that I will get safe, steady interests form my 100 RXP2EX.FRA, whatever happens with World Economy.
