- Foreign currency bonds are often unattractive to U.S. investors because they offer very low yields or are perceived as carrying too much risk.
- By hedging the currencies of some foreign bonds, higher yields are obtainable—in many cases higher than the yields from U.S. Treasuries.
- Hedging the currency of emerging market bonds typically reduces the yield but can help to mitigate volatility.
