You need inflation for these things to do well, like REITs.  You might want to look at a floating rate investment.  If you have lost too much money on it, it is time to step aside.

COMMENT

A real return bond is a bond that is issued by the government of Canada that pays a return above the inflation rate. Likes this one a great deal. If you feel inflation is coming down the road, probably not a bad thing to do.

COMMENT

A Real Return Bond is a way to hedge against inflation. Given that we don’t have a lot of inflation and he doesn’t see any in the future, it is not one he would recommend. This one has done very well because it is a very focused portfolio on long bonds. As interest rates in general have gone down, this ETF has had double-digit returns.

He is not a big fan or real return bonds. Often finds they are not that liquid.

iUnits Real Return Bond ETF. The real driver for real return bonds in the last year has been the fall in interest rates. This one is a basket of long bonds with the shortest being too 2021 out 2041 or 2046. Low coupon so have a higher sensitivity to interest rates, to the upside this year. If you own, try to reduce your exposure. Once long-term interest rates start to rise, these are going to sell off faster than anything else in the bond market.

Real Return Bond ETF. Doesn't like the liquidity and the rates are really lousy. There are lots of alternatives.

Real Return Bond ETF. Real return bonds are linked to inflation, so as inflation goes up, the coupon will adjust to that. He is not worried about inflation at this time.

There is no upside in these that he can see. There’s no performance upside. Conventional bonds are outperforming real return bonds.

Real return bonds have had a great run, which is surprising. Currently you get inflation plus 1.5%, which is at or near an all-time low. Also the shortest one is 11 years and longest is 30 years, so they are long duration bonds and very sensitive to interest rates changes. With interest rates going higher, these will under perform the market in the next 12 months.

Real Return Bond ETF. These are fine where you have a half decent rate of return going but right now you don't and they are long-term.

Is 10% of a portfolio in real return bonds reasonable? Perfectly appropriate for a conservative investor but he doesn't like real return bonds at this time because returns are not very good and inflation is not on the horizon. Better choice would be Short Bond Index (XSB-T). (See Top Picks.)

Fund is up 11% YTD. Will inflation give an even better return? Absolutely. 11% return was not because of inflation but because of real yields falling. Would be cautious about buying these at current levels.
