IAGG Fund Description

The iShares Core International Aggregate Bond ETF tracks an index composed of global non-U.S. dollar denominated investment grade bonds, hedged against currency fluctuations for USD investors.

IAGG FactSet Analytics Insight

IAGG provides broad exposure to investment-grade bonds denominated in non-US currencies, while hedging out foreign currency risk for US investors. It competes directly with Vanguard’s hugely popular BNDX, which tracks a nearly identical index. The portfolio captures a broad swath of issuers, primarily sovereign treasury debt but also corporates and agency/government-related debt, from both developed and emerging markets.
IAGG charges a few bps less than BNDX, but be sure to check the tracking difference stats for each fund to get a sense of true holding costs. IAGG heavily optimizes its portfolio—it holds roughly one-third as many names as BNDX—which can help keep costs down, but can also lead to inconsistent tracking. IAGG trades with respectable volume, though spreads can be wide at times. Creations and redemptions may be difficult due to the illiquid nature of the underlying bonds.
