Fixed Income ETFs Have Mixed Exposure to Greece

Ian Salisbury is reporting that investors with holdings in a popular fixed income ETF need not be concerned about direct exposure to the debt crisis in Greece.

In the article, Bond-Fund Investors Can Rest Easy, Mostly, Salisbury writes that the $11 billion iShares Barclays Aggregate Bond Fund (AGG) has minimal international fixed income exposure.

In contrast, the iShares S&P-Citigroup International Treasury Bond Fund (IGOV) has nearly 5% of the portfolio allocated to debt issued by the Greek government.
