ETFs for inflation rally to close 2020

0

Two exchange-traded fund strategies that allow investors to position for higher inflation outperformed on the last day of 2020. ETFs with exposure to Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities were higher: the iShares TIPS Bond ETF
TIP,
+0.21%
gained 0.1%, and the Schwab US TIPS ETF
SCHP,
+0.27%
was up 0.2%. Banks also benefit from steeper inflation, which provides a bigger differential between the rate at which banks lend and the rate they pay for customer deposits. On Thursday, bank-stock ETFs also rose: the Invesco KBW Bank ETF
KBWB,
+0.50%
jumped 0.5%, while the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund
XLF,
+0.53%
was up 0.3%, making it one of the biggest gainers among ETFs tracking the 13 sectors of the S&P 500
SPX,
+0.03%.
The broader market was slightly lower.
