Vanguard US Government Bond Index

A fund that looks to track the performance of US government bonds

The fund aims to track the performance of the Barclays Global Aggregate US Government Float Adjusted Index, which tracks bonds issued by the US Government, also known as US Treasuries. The tracker will hold securities with a range of maturities to reflect the benchmark index. Rather than hold all the bonds in the index, the fund will utilise a variety of optimisation techniques including sampling to produce a portfolio that delivers the return characteristics of the reference benchmark. We like the tracker as it gives us exposure to a broad selection of US government bonds and it has tracked the benchmark well historically.
