I came across TIPS in Graham’s security analysis book. I attempted to find them on DEGIRO but and found indices of such:

iShares $ TIPS UCITS ETF EUR Hedged (Acc)

Q1: How do you decipher that?

Q2. Is there an index site for EU issued inflation protected securities?


1 Answer 1


Note that this is an ETF, not an Index:

  • TIPS = US Treasury Inflation Protected Securities
  • UCITS = Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (EU regulated)
  • ETF = Exchange Traded Fund
  • EUR = Demoninated in Euros
  • Hedged = currency risk (USD/EUR) is hedged
  • Acc = Accumulating (does not pay dividends, but reinvests them)

Q2 is off-topic (request for resource), but note that this fund tracks the Bloomberg US Government Inflation-Linked Bond Index.

You can also search for inflation-based ETFs on iShare's site to find funds that meet your criteria and look at what indexes they track.
