"Xtrackers II USD Emerging Markets Bond UCITS ETF 1C EUR Hedged" is an exchange-traded, Euro hedged investment fund (ETF). It refers to the FTSE Emerging Markets USD Government and Government-Related Bond Select Index. This index reflects the development of Emerging Marketsgovernment bonds . The ETF replicates its index using physical replication with sampling, so it contains the most important securities of its reference index. The ETF's earnings (interest payments) are automatically reinvested (accumulated). The fund company Xtrackers claims a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.40% per year. The yearly average divergence from the index performance (Tracking Difference) since 2009 was 1.22% per year. Therefore, the ETF was significantly more expensive than the TER suggests. Besides, the yearly tracking differences had strong variations, so their average value is not a very reliable measure.

Every bubble represents an ETF. The further to the right it is, the higher (worse) is its tracking difference. The further up it is, the higher the total expense ratio specified by the fund company. The bubble's area represents the fund volume.
