Government Bonds ETFs


Most of these ETFs offer investors exposure to fixed income securities issued by government agencies. Bonds featured in these ETFs include U.S. Treasuries of varying maturities, floating rate Treasury bonds, and TIPS. In a low interest rate environment, government bonds will tend to perform generally well and will remain quite liquid from a buying and selling standpoint. While we are concerned about the outlook for interest rates to rise, there aren't many better industry options currently for conservative investors who are in capital preservation mode and have little to no appetite for stock market volatility.
